Art in Industry: The Silver of Paul Storr
Art in Industry
The Silver of Paul Storr
Paperback      ISBN: 1898565147

The first book on Paul Storr for more than fifty yearsBicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, so Regency period in the newsPaul Storr (1770-1844), acknowledged to be the greatest silversmith of the Regency period, holds a special place in the history of English silver. The workshops he directed, first for the Royal Goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, and later on his own account, wrought some of the greatest silver of the first half of the nineteenth century. The designs were provided by well-known Regency names such as John Flaxman, William Theed, Edward Hodges Baily, and Thomas Stothard. Storr numbered among his clients not only British royalty and aristocracy, but continental European nobility and prominent Americans. The year 2015 marks the bicentennial of the Battle of Waterloo, which saw Britain emerge as the dominant power in Europe. Military campaigns on land and sea, a more international outlook, newly fashionable foods, changes in table settings, and above all the creation of great wealth for Britain resulted in a revolution in silverware.

Still Life
Platform 9
Paperback      ISBN: 1945150173

Platform is the Harvard University Graduate School of Design's annual compendium of select student work, events, lectures, and exhibitions.

Taking the artistic still life as its departure point, the ninth edition of Platform chronicles the 2015-2016 academic year at the GSD. Models and student projects, including dissertations and drawings, are skillfully arranged and presented to reference the still life as expressed in 18th- and 19th- century European painting, popular advertising, contemporary art, and other contexts.

These images not only present the broad range of work produced by GSD students but also challenge conventional modes of architectural documentation through multiple readings, lists, and novel interpretations of form.
