The gloriously diverse collections of America's National Design Museum comprise a unique history of design. These extraordinary objects tell stories about themselves and about us: how we go about our daily lives, how we shape the spaces we live and work in, and the multitude of ways we communicate with each other. This book draws on the experience of a century of collecting, documenting, and studying design.
