a new book on achille castiglioni

achille castiglioni: design!
was the title of an exhibition at the moma (museum of modern art)
in new york in 1997. the concept was developed by paola antonelli,
curator of the museum's department of architecture and design.
only few people really enjoy reading exhibition wall texts, to catch
people's attention she prefered to use images, the most universal
of all languages, instead of much-dreaded curatorial texts.
so she called her friend steven guarnaccia, illustrator and designer,
to draw a picture for almost each of the 120 objects on show.
his witty illustrations condensed in a few knowing lines the design
story behind each object.
