This is a 456-page hardback book, described as ‘the most comprehensive book on architect and designer Marcel Breuer’. That’s quite  claim, but when Phaidon says it, we’re happy to go along with it.

The book promises to look in detail at all the houses, furniture, and public buildings he designed In Europe and the United States, from his beginning at the Bauhaus through his collaboration with Walter Gropius, and the establishment of his own practice in the USA.

Of course, some of those houses have been featured on this site when they have come up for sale, but as you can see from the advance shots, this book will go into far more detail on a wider range of houses, including house plans and archive shots. In fact, there are 500 colour illustrations found within the book, which pretty much sums up the depth of work in here.

The book is available from 27th June 2016 but is available to pre-order now, selling for £100. Told you it might be a case of saving up.
