Mid Century Modern + Scandinavian Style: NEW RELEASES!

I've been anxiously awaiting the release of Mid-Century Modern: Interiors, Furniture, Design Details by Bradley Quinn (published by Conran), and for some reason, my pre-order on Amazon didn't go through so I forgot all about this title until today when I was posting our new book of the week (Marimekko - it's not a new title, but the book rocks - my review and photos coming soon!).

Anyway, I want to order Mid-Century Modern, but I'm thinking that I'll wait for now since I'm trying so hard to cut my spending between now and Germany (we leave in September). I'd rather carry some cash over there since I know I'll find plenty of spending opportunities, and with the Euro being so strong, I need to pocket all the change I can get right now. I know it's only $19, but still...

Mid-Century Modern released on July 28th, and from the cover alone, I'm intriqued. I just love that bold wall hanging over that sweet credenza, don't you?

Another book I've been watching, also a new release as of July 28th, is Scandinavian Style by the same author, Bradley Quinn (also Conran). It calls itself an international sourcebook that traces the design and interior traditions of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. It's also around $19, so it's quite a bargain. I can't wait to crack open this title and draw in the yummy goodness. I'm sure the photos inside are a delight.

Does anyone own either of these? Interested in reviewing them for us?
