Irving Harper book release

Collectors Weekly has a really cool article about Irving Harper, the uncredited inventor of the Marshmallow Sofa and Sunburst Clock who made waves with his wild, whimsical paper sculptures of animals, masks, and Cubist abstractions. Now, an upcoming coffee-table book lets anyone tour his home and his private collection of handmade art. We’ve got the story of how Harper bolstered George Nelson and Herman Miller furniture—plus a sneak-peak of the photos and interviews with the book’s creators. The release date is February 12.Check out more in the article here – Paper Wizard: Mid-Century Modern’s Unsung Visionary Gets His Due
