Brooke Kamin, “Vital Forms American Art and Design in the Atomic Age”



First edition, published by the Brooklyn Museum of Art in association with H.N Abrams, 2001 Vital forms explores the cultural moods in the U.S of the years between 1940-1960, examining ways that the use of biomorphic shapes were able to cross disciplines and provide a point of intersection for Fine art and popular culture. This book features hundreds of high quality photographs, a combination of Fine art and commercial design, and several essays which contextualize the works.
