This Summer I discovered for the first time, the work of designer, craftsman, artist, and environmental visionary Edgar Miller. I was thumbing through the Summer installment of Modernism Magazine when I came upon the most beguiling photographs of interiors and exteriors richly laden with colorful tile, decorative murals, illustrative stained glass, hand carved woodwork, and custom metal work.
Featured in the article, and well worth ever penny, is the book Edgar Miller and the Hand-Made Home by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams just out this Summer. http://www.amazon.com/Edgar-Miller-Hand-Made-Home-Renaissance/dp/0978545052
