AGO Event with MID-CENTURY MODERN author Judith Miller

Join us Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. for an hour of fascinating conversation about Judith Miller’s life with antiques and a glimpse into her latest book heralding design from the 1940s to 1960s. Miller’s Mid-Century Modern (Mitchell Beazley, 978-1845336936) is a comprehensive and critical guide to one of the most exciting periods in design history and one of the hottest design trends of the moment. This invaluable book covers all of the most iconic designs and designers emanating from the 1940s to 1960s and explores the most desirable furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware, interiors and textiles from the period. The event will take place at the AGO (317 Dundas street W) visit for more information.
