Milan: Terrazzo srl, 1992. 1st Edition. Tall folio, publisher's color printed stiff paper wraps.
"[One question] was for instance how comes Terrazzo is so classical? Meaning how comes after Memphis you people come out with such a calm, neatly laid out magazine, a few hints of perversity here and there, but that overall aura of seriousness...Panic. Like asking why isn't history staying still?" (Babara Radice). Seventh issue of this lavish bi-annual architecture and design publication, edited and published by Italian journalist Radice, founding member - with her husband, designer Ettore Sottsass - of the Memphis Group. This issue features an essay by Arata Isozaki with photos by Yasuhiro Ishimoto, an essay by founder of influential design firm SITE James Wines, travel notes by Sottsass, and a portfolio of plans. Light rubbing to edges. Near fine. Item #6534
