Multifarious: Maya Romanoff's Grand Canvas by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams
Legendary designer Richard "Maya" Romanoff (1941—January 15, 2014) left an indubitable mark on walls. Under his creative eye, unlikely materials such as shells, glass, and precious metals entered into the world of wallcoverings — with dazzling results. A master at reflecting light, Romanoff often created products that sparkled and shimmered.
The biography by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams will offer the world a peek into this designer's illustrious career, from his tie-die obsession in the 1960s to the beginnings of his family firm to collaborations with renowned artists.
Each book is wrapped in Romanoff handmade paper. Pages are bursting with color, with photos of material from Romanoff's design studio such as paint-splashed recipe cards — his method of recording designs — and color swatches used for dye experimentation.
