9780997149302: Irving Harper: Paper Sculptures

American industrial designer Irving Harper (1916 2015) has been lauded as one of the most prolific designers of the modernist style. Harper lived in Rye, New York, in a 19th-century farmhouse filled with modernist furnishings and over 300 paper sculptures. Working in his attic, Harper created extensive groups of his paper sculptures with a dizzying array of visual motifs. His mastery of the delicate material gave way to the execution of a seemingly limitless stream of objects: ranging from tribal and oceanic art to cubism and his beloved tree in the garden. These extraordinary, idiosyncratic and diverse sculptures have been restored, cataloged and beautifully photographed in their entirety for the first time. Irving Harper: Paper Sculptures is a thoughtfully designed publication devoted to presenting a little known chapter in the creative life of one of modern design's most important protagonists. Includes 348 images almost all in full color! Contributions by Irving Harper, George Nelson & Associates, Richard Wright and Paul Makovsky.
