To document how her design idols really lived, Leslie Williamson took her camera inside their homes. The images in the resulting book, Handcrafted Modern: At Home With Mid-Century Designers—doorknobs made from found objects at Russel Wright's glass box in the Hudson River Valley, a crewelwork owl hand-stitched onto a rocking-chair back at Vladimir Kagan's Park Avenue apartment, and tchotchkes scattered on Walter Gropius' desk built for two (himself and his wife, Ise) in rural Massachusetts—prove that modernism always had a softer side. $45; rizzoliusa.com
