Meet Eileen Gray, the architect behind the monumental E-1027 and pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture.

160 pages, Illustration throughout

Meet Eileen Gray, the architect behind the monumental E-1027 and pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. In 1924, work began in earnest on a small villa by the sea in the south of France.

Nearly a century later, this structure has become a monument for modern design. However, like so many gifted female artists, Eileen Gray's story has been eclipsed by the men with whom she collaborated - this story puts the focus back on Gray and her mastery of design. Dzierżawska's exquisite visuals bring to life the tale of a young Irish designer whose dedication and desire to create came to flourish during the 'Années Folles' of early 20th century Paris.

Selling points

Perfect for lovers of architecture, with structural elements woven into the visual organization of the book.

Debut Nobrow collaboration with a talented upcoming comic artist. A masterstroke of feminist illustrated literature.
