California Design, 1930–1965 edited by Wendy Kaplan

This beautiful book, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is the first comprehensive examination of California’s mid-century modern design. The heart of California Design is the modern California home, famously characterized by open plans conducive to outdoor living. Featuring design luminaries such as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig, and Heath Ceramics, it covers furniture, ceramics, metalwork, architecture, graphic and industrial design, film, textiles, and fashion.

Jere and Emilee Gettle, founders of the fantastic Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, have just published a wonderful new book. “Their joyous message is that gardening can be done wherever you have dirt, sun, water, and pure seeds. At the heart of the book is an extensive ‘A to Z growing guide’ that provides tips on growing, seed saving, pests and diseases, and preparation for preparing plants from amaranth to watermelon. In this lavishly illustrated guide, the Gettles convince us of the benefits of getting into the garden, gently encouraging and guiding us with steps for doing so.” —Publishers Weekly
