The “e” is not the only distinguishing factor

In praise of the pocket hand-warmer

On behalf of all those who feel the cold, let's hope that these creatively neglected heat sources will develop into decorative accessories for snowy winter days.

Weighing in at eight hundred pages in length, "The Story of Eames Furniture" indeed makes a promising impression. A variety of historical images showing Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Office itself as well as legendary products such as the Lounge Chair, are a feast for the reader's eyes. Unfortunately, however, in places the book's content appears to be strongly influenced by the authors' subjective perspective on design history.
