The Libraries would like to highlight some new titles that have been added recently to the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum Library.
Déco: arte in Italia, 1919-1939, a cura di Francesca Cagianelli, Dario Matteoni. Cinisello Balsamo, Milano: Silvana, 2009. Gift of Roma and David Korris. N6918.5.A7 D43 2009 CHM
Most art historians trace the origins of Art Deco to the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Art in Paris in 1925 but a parallel movement was taking shape in Italy. A number of thinkers, designers and artists were producing fascinating new geometric work in Italy and Monza's International Expositions of Decorative Arts in 1923, 1925 and 1927 provided a showcase for this developing style. 'Déco. Arte in Italia 1919-1939' explores this trend as it emerged in Italy. Catalog of an exhibition held at the Pinacoteca di Palazzo Roverella, Rovigo, Italy, June 28, 2009.

The houses of Greenwich Village, by Kevin D. Murphy ; photography by Paul Rocheleau. New York : Abrams, 2008. Gift of Roma and David Korris. NA735.N5 M87 2008 CHM
The houses of Greenwich Village takes readers inside 20 homes to show how the interiors evolved over time with the residents’ needs. A modest row house from 1827, for example, was renovated in 1893 to transform it into a space appropriate for Robert Blum, a celebrated artist interested in “Japonisme.” And in 2003, an 1801 town house was renovated by Ben Cherner and Emma O’Neill, architects who turned it into four Modernist apartments with a penthouse that blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor space.
