Eileen Gray: A House Under the Sun

By Charlotte Malterre-Barthes
Illustrated by Zosia Dzierzawska

In 1924, work began in earnest on a small villa by the sea in the south of France. Nearly a century later, this structure is a design milestone. Meet Eileen Gray, the woman behind the E-1027 house and a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture.

Like so many gifted female artists and designers of her time, Eileen Gray's story has been eclipsed by the men with whom she collaborated. Dzierzawska's exquisite visuals bring to life the tale of a young Irish designer whose work and life came to bloom during the 'Années Folles' of early 20th century Paris.

  • Perfect for lovers of architecture, with structural elements woven into the visual organization of the book
  • Debut Nobrow collaboration with a talented upcoming comic artist
  • A masterstroke of feminist illustrated literature
