Marc Newson Book – Taschen

Taschen is giving Australian industrial designer Marc Newson some loving attention from a fine tooth comb with the publication of their new book, Marc NewsonMarc Newson Book   Taschen, a comprehensive look at a career that has given the world impressive visions of furniture, automobiles, airplanes, boats and more. The hefty volume includes case studiesof some of Newson’s bigger projects as well as an in-depth interview between the designer and Louise Neri.

This is a bit of a tonal shift from what we have been eyeballing lately from the publishing house—what with the intensely distracting properties of their big books on “Breasts” and “Pussy”—but looks plenty interesting nonetheless. Raised and trained in Sydney with some teeth-cutting in Japan, Paris and London, Newson is truly a global designer with duly global influence.

Coming this August from Taschen. Available from AmazonMarc Newson Book   Taschen.
