FIRST EDITION. "Introducing Keepsakes: A Design Memoir, by noted Russian designer Constantin Boym. Featuring a specially curated group of personal objects, some designed by Boym, and others collected through his travels from Russia to Turkey, Italy, Qatar, but all accompanied by a witty commentary on the objects themselves as well as what they mean to him. Each brings up a different story, but is always referenced back as a source and inspiration for Boym's design principles and process. Through these often humble objects, items providing insights into the life and culture of the people using or making them, Boym points out enduring truths for today" (the publisher).
