As Memories Fade
Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.
Loving Lebus encapsulates the changing styles of furniture over time. With comprehensive notes placing Lebus furniture in context the author has selected the best of the firm's advertisements, catalogue images, photographs and Lebus furniture pieces today. Antique and vintage – Lebus furniture is enjoying a resurgence. We are once again, ‘Loving Lebus’. Paul has nurtured a passion for all things Lebus. His first book Harris Lebus: A Romance with the Furniture Trade went behind the scenes to look into how Lebus furniture was made. Now the Lebus story is complete – Loving Lebus: Looking into Lebus Furniture is another labour of love.
