What began with a small set of unique handmade brushes found by French design consultant Daniel Rozensztroch and writer and collector Shiri Slavin quickly escalated into an obsession. The result is a visual compendium of more than two hundred colour photographs capturing the seemingly endless variations of a useful, common tool, the brush. This delightful book is a must-have for anyone interested in design, folk art, and collecting. It will accompany an exhibition of the collection at the BibliothSque Forney in Paris opening in February of 2006.

About the author (2005)

Design consultant and art director Stafford Cliff has spent a lifetime designing catalogs and magazines relating to the home. Working with Sir Terence Conran he produced the very first Habitat catalogs and, in 1974, designed "The House Book", one of the first truly design-led guides to interior furnishing, which became the biggest selling home book of all time. Since then he has produced dozens of books on aspects of design and the home-- most recently "The Way We Live", a remarkable 480-page survey of homes around the world, and two titles for Artisan: "Home", a groundbreaking investigation into how we feel about our homes, and "1000 Garden Ideas", a visual sourcebook featuring garden and patio elements from around the world.
