WOMEN DE­SIGN BY LIBBY SELL­ERS De­sign his­to­rian, au­thor, gal­lerist and for­mer cu­ra­tor at Lon­don’s De­sign Mu­seum Libby Sell­ers’ new book pro­files the lives and work of 21 of the world’s most prom­i­nent fe­male cre­atives. Pi­o­neers such as Eileen Gray, Ray Eames and Eva Zeisel are cel­e­brated along­side to­day’s in­no­va­tors, from Neri Ox­man to Pa­tri­cia Urquiola and Nathalie du Pasquier. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the women who have shaped the way we live (£20, Fran­cis Lin­coln). NEW WAVE CLAY: CE­RAMIC DE­SIGN, ART AND AR­CHI­TEC­TURE BY TOM MOR­RIS De­sign jour­nal­ist Mor­ris has seized upon the cur­rent ap­petite for all things craft with his lat­est book. Delv­ing into the world of ex­per­i­men­tal ce­ramic fur­ni­ture, mu­rals, ves­sels, 3D print­ing and even clay-based build­ings, he shines a light on 55 ex­cit­ing de­sign­ers at the very fore­front of the move­ment (£32, Frame).
