‘Laughing out loud at our culture and at itself, Memphis - a kind of cartoon come to life.’ The first comprehensive and heavily illustrated work on Memphis written by a founder member of the group. This book is filled with sketches and illustrations of Memphis design across interiors, furniture, fashion and architecture. Some especially fun examples included here such as a bed that looks like a boxing ring, brightly coloured chairs that resemble anthropomorphic creatures poised to dance, or wallpapers and prints that look like fantastic sweet wrappers.  With an introduction by Ettore Sottsass.
