Maija Isola: Elämä, Taide, Marimekko Hardcover 1st ed 2005
Maija Isola: Elämä, Taide, Marimekko clothbound hardcover with special dust jacket Finnish 1st ed 2005.
Maija Isola, 1927-2001, was the first designer hired by Marimekko. Her most famous print, Unikko, has become the most recognizable icon of the Marimekko Company. Her early work was inspired by nature, and her first prints were created through a photographic process whereby actual plants were projected onto a screen. As she matured, her designs became bolder and less detailed, containing large areas of color. Most of the contents of this book are her textile works but also her lifestyle is featured. This is a valuable title for all sort of designers, textile lovers, those who are interested in Northern European designs, and by all means for Marimekko fans all over the world.
Massively illustrated with the many talents of Maija including archival Marimekko ads and print design. Jacket shows some scuffs as pictured otherwise in excellent condition. She's a hard one to find an excellent design reference.
