Past and Present is a DIY book with over 24 projects and how-to’s contributed by modern design/maker celebrities like Todd Oldham, David Stark and Eddie Ross. Written by Amy Azzarito, the managing editor of Design*Sponge the book features a history lesson on design themes and a corresponding project to make.
Throughout the book are history lessons accompanied by illustrations by Julia Rothman. In design, everything is influenced by something else. It is nice to see the direct correlation between a trend and where it stems from historically.
Thanks, Abrams Books.
