Reviews

Beautifully illustrated with images of Filip's paintings, sculpture, furniture, jewelry, drawings, and other objects, this new work does much in the way of recognizing and highlighting the importance of the artist's achievements and helping a new generation learn of his contributions. VERDICT Highly recommended...
--Library Journal

"It should not take long for this mid-century artist and designer to take his place in the American modernist canon, and a new book will only hasten the process. Richard Filipowski: Art & Design Beyond the Bauhaus, a handsome volume edited by Marisa Bartolucci, tells Filipowski's story through scholarly essays and hundreds of photographs of his work."
--Gregory Cerio, MODERN magazine In this new book, editor Marisa Bartolucci provides a review of Mr. Filipowski's evolution as a person and artist, as told in essays penned by various designers and artists. Glorious photographs (many full-page photos) share space with the essays, showcasing Mr. Filipowski's creativity. It's a fascinating approach to learning about the man, known as 'Filip' among friends and colleagues, who not only created art but also taught and inspired students.
