A Global Vision of Design

by Vicente Wolf

The book travels photo by photo through Ethiopia, Madagascar,

Myanmar, Borneo and Syria, intermixing design photos and

adding helpful paint chips…top photo is  Benjamin Moore 1675

Inspired by Cote Texas’s round table and Topsy Turvey’s

and of course Vicente Wolf himself…
