This is a carefully researched book about early electric irons from the streamlined era. It contains information on and photographs of over 150 irons from the 1930s and 1940s. It is a must have for anyone interested in streamlined design. Full time practitioners, educators and students will find this to be a valuable resource for examining how a single set of stylistic principles can be interpreted in so many different ways. It also provides numerous examples of how design can be influenced by manufacturing processes and how those processes can be woven into the aesthetic of the final form.
