Happy holidays from Azure

Happy holidays from Azure

Azure is taking a short break for the holidays. To celebrate, we leave you with a collection of images from the fabulous new book on Alexander Girard designed by Todd Oldman and Kiera Coffee, and published by AMMO. Weighing in at 6.8 kilos, the 675-page tome traces the New York textile designer’s prolific career, from his bold and colourful work for Herman Miller and his Austin Power-worthy mod interiors to his brilliant typographic works that came to define the 1960s era of optimism, happiness and play. We’ll be back on January 2, 2012.
