Item description for Charlotte Perriand -- Livre de Bord by Arthur Ruegg & Steven Lindberg...
The acclaimed French designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) worked in the studio of Le Corbusier in the late 1920s together with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. The famous Corbusier furniture pieces are the result of this unique collaboration. A facsimile reproduction of Charlotte Perriand's 140 page Livre de Bord, her sketchbook during the years 1927-1933, is the centrepiece of this publication. Arthur Regg's introductory essay brings to life in text and image those pioneering years. His precise and detailed commentaries inspire an appreciation and understanding of the richness of each drawing. A 16 page dossier of illustrations recreates the famous 1929 Salon d'Automne and the original furnishings of Villa Church. Arthur Regg, Professor for Architecture and Construction at the ETH in Zurich, is the leading expert on Le Corbusier's interior design, furniture and colour theory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Charlotte Perriand -- Livre de Bord?
very nice informative book Dec 23, 2007
The book is big with a lot of drawings and pictures, with many comments or notes from the author herself. The book was what I expected, information and drawings. My book arrived sealed in plastic which I loved because no one else before me had open the book. It was very clean. I would love all books from this site to be sent like this. I am looking for another book with her drawings of what she did afterwards in the fifties.
I returned the book Jul 6, 2007
I had to return this book because it was dirty. It was probably a return itself.
