"Certain problems arise in discussing the subject of women in design, beginning with the phrase itself. Many women in the design field want to be acknowledged for the ideas and work they produce, as opposed to being singled out for the fact that they happen to be women...Any excuse to push them into the spotlight is acceptable in my opinion. Why not?" (from designer and educator McQuiston's introduction). This survey focuses on 43 designers in areas not traditionally associated with women, such as graphic, product, and industrial design and architecture, and includes profiles of Frances Butler, Muriel Cooper, Zaha Hadid, Annabel Jankel, Nathalie du Pasquier, Barbara Radice, Lorraine Wild, and others. Illustrated with hundreds of photos and reproductions, mostly black-and-white but some in color. Fine. Item #1419
