My What Good Design you Have!

In 1949 the Detroit Institute of Arts put on an Exhibition for Modern Living.  The show was curated by Alexander Girard, and its goal was to put good design on display for the masses.  It featured custom room installations by the likes of modern masters including Alvar Aalto, Florence Knoll, George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, in addition to countless others … lucky for all of us more than 60 years later, the exhibition catalogue is equally beautiful with the most incredible illustrations by Saul Steinberg!
