Yo Jonathan! What’s Up With The New Book?
Clicking over to JA’s website revealed two big surprises this morning:
1. the website has been completely redesigned and it looks beautiful.
2. He’s just put out a new book that riffs dangerously close to our hallowed Therapy & Prescription theme (and our own upcoming book): “Jonathan Adler: My Presciption for Anti-Despressive Living”. We were among the first to be surprised when our name caught currency, but does EVERYONE have to copy it?
Regardless, JA’s new book looks juicy. Here’s the description:
[The book] explores Jonathan’s own tongue-in-cheek design “manifesto,” with each chapter devoted to a different “tenet,” moving through the major incarnations of his interiors and products and ending with the story of his personal creative odyssey….
it’s a visual feast, jam-packed with images of interiors and objects for the home…. At the heart of the book are ten of Adler’s signature interiors, ranging from photographer Andrea Stern’s landmark modernist beach house to the Parker Palm Springs, a desert resort that Adler gave a head-to-toe makeover.
