Modwagen's pocket Field-Guide to Mid-Century Modern

Have you ever been out thrifting and wished you had a small, easy-to-carry book that would help you identify your finds? Well, now you have the chance to help make that a reality.

Christo Stevens, a longtime follower of my blog, has written just such a book, and he's gone to Kickstarter to raise money to complete his project. The book will measure 3" x 5" and will include terminology, notable designers, notable manufacturers, chairs, sofas, end and coffee tables, credenzas and dining sets, art and wall hangings, lamps and light fixtures and vintage audio.

To introduce you to Christo and to give you a preview of the book, here are a few photos he said I could share with you.
