More than just a print company, Marimekko has woven itself into modern design history. As such, the stories behind the company, its prints and its designers are almost as interesting as the famous patterns themselves. A secret look into the inner workings of Marimekko, I’m recommending two books this week that will make you become an even bigger fan.
A literary adventure, the Marimekko: Fabrics, Fashion Architecture book is hands down one of the most comprehensive sources for information about this mod-minded company. Filled with detailed descriptions about famous designers, history and rare vintage photos are simply to die for. Great for a design library or coffee table, this book allows you to have every bit of Marimekko history available at your fingertips.
More of a visual learner? Not to worry, my second source for Marimekko related information is located in the Marimekko Mook Book. Part book, part magazine this publication has page after page of color photos to excite any Marimekko enthusiast. The best part; this mook book includes a free tote bag with purchase.
Check out AlwaysMod to find out more about these books and trust me; being a bookworm has never been so cool!
