Book Description

Sept. 28 2011
True modernity requires much more than discipline, vision, and a willingness to live without upper kitchen cabinets. It's Lonely in the Modern World outlines exactly what's required to achieve sleek design and the requisite ennui. From the creators of the wildly popular Web site Unhappyhipsters.com, this essential guide is for today's hipsters what The Official Preppy Handbook was for prepsters. The authors advise on a number of topics. Readers will learn how to navigate the vast array of concrete finishes and plywood grades, accessorize with children and pets, opine with authority on rooflines. Featuring detailed illustrations, beautifully staged photos, and helpful charts, this master manual is perfect for aspiring modernists, those who love them, and, of course, those who love to hate them.

Format:Paperback
I love this book! Its just as funny as the blog and includes all of these great illustrations. It also has the same beautiful photography as the blog complete with lots of unhappy looking folks. I also think this makes a perfect gift for a lover of home design because it also has a ton of really interesting information.
