The Interior Design Reader By Judith Gura, By Sarah Falls
The Interior Design Reader is an essential source for the interior designer or design student, incorporating excerpts of key works on design theory from the ancient world to the twenty-first century. By documenting the ideas and philosophies that provided the foundations of design styles and movements through history, this rich book deals with design theory in its application to interior design. The compiled excerpts from writings about design range from classic to contemporary. Such luminaries include:

• Vitruvius
• Palladio
• Ruskin
• Morris
• Charles Eastlake
• Ellen Key
• Edith Wharton
• Elsie de Wolfe
• Walter Gropius
• Le Corbusier
• Dorothy Draper
• Billy Baldwin
• William Pahlmann
• Angelo Donghia
• Mark Hampton
• And many other prominent designers, living and deceased.

The Interior Design Reader is a guide into design education, and will help students and practitioners alike form a deeper understanding of the connection between traditional theory and contemporary design practice.
