Explore the brilliant, bold designs, and intriguing collections in the beautiful interiors of author Carey Maloney, his partner, architect Hermes Mallea, and their firm, M(Group), in this one-of-a-kind interactive omnibus.
As quoted in a recent story in The New York Times, “Times change,” says Maloney. And decorating books, he says, should change with them.
Accordingly, “Stuff : The M (Group) Interactive Guide to Collecting, Decorating With, and Learning About, Wonderful and Unusual Things” (Pointed Leaf Press, $65), invites the reader inside the wonderfully diverse homes of impassioned collectors, detailing the wide variety of art and objects that go into the creation of M(Group)’s complex, richly layered, and beautifully orchestrated interiors. A unique interactive digital recognition technology allows readers to delve deep into an array of 40 esoteric and varied topics—from anatomical models to Australian aboriginal art, pre-Columbian pottery to Coromandel screens, and taxidermy to Tiffany lamps—all accompanied by personal anecdotes as witty and insightful as the homes M(Group) designs.
A free app can scan the topics pages and take readers to links on a wide and quirky range of resources — which, for maps, includes links not just to high-end dealers but also to a Web page on map tattoos.
