News: an interview with Daniel Ostroff author of "An Eames Anthology: Articles, Film Scripts, Interviews, Letters, Notes, and Speeches,"

Eames scholar Daniel Ostroff has compiled an anthology of design couple Charles and Ray Eames' written output -- articles, film scripts, interviews, letters, notes and speeches -- from 1941 to 1986. 
The book is illustrated with rarely seen drawings and photographs, and about 70% of the collected texts are previously unpublished, Ostroff notes. "They were as careful with their words as they were with their designs and very good at coming up with one-liners, such as 'Take your pleasure seriously.'"
