Art And Design Books For Sale on 1stDibs

Find a variety of art and design books available on 1stDibs. The range of distinct art and design books — often made from paper, metal and other — can elevate any home. Art and design books have been made for many years, and versions that date back to the 20th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 21st Century. There are many kinds of art and design books to choose from, but at 1stDibs, Art Deco and Folk Art art and design books are of considerable interest. Art and design books have been a part of the life’s work for many furniture makers, but those produced by Brooke Kamin, David P. Billington and Michael S. Smith are consistently popular.

Finding the Right Books for You

Antique and vintage books add a sense of culture and style to any room. Displaying these types of books in your living room or reading nook can warm a space with a distinguished feel.

Several factors make antique books highly desirable. Original jackets, ornate binding, illustrations and quality of the print all contribute to making a vintage book special. Rare books are of great interest to collectors in the know and can command high prices at auction. In 2021, an important early artist book by Andy Warhol sold at auction for more than $106,000. Somewhere between all the commercial work he did as an ambitious young graphic designer in the early 1950s and his first real debut as a Pop artist a decade later, Warhol produced a trove of incredibly charming drawings. His illustrated self-published artist books from the 1950s are very rare.

Many collectors seek the first edition of certain books. Fewer copies of a book and higher demand make it a rare find. A book that contains the author’s signature also makes it much more prized than other examples of the same title.

Collectors and designers decorate rooms with vintage books for a cozy feeling in a home. Coffee-table books, such as those featuring photography and design, serve as conversation pieces or offer a relaxing moment when leafed through.

Interior designers look for vintage books when they want to add color or detail. For instance, leather-bound books can create a scholarly air while mid-century titles offer a modern edge. Vintage international books or first editions can provide a sense of history.

No matter the genre, there is a book for you. You can find rare, one-of-a-kind antique books on 1stDibs. Browse by authors, like celebrated architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright and Edgar Rice Burroughs, as well as by period, including mid-century modern, Art Deco and Victorian.

Questions About Art And Design Books
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2024
    Art and design are important for a few reasons. First, they allow people to express feelings and make commentaries on social issues and aspects of daily life, communicating messages that can resonate with others. Thoughtful designs can improve everyday life by making spaces more livable and people more comfortable, while art beautifies environments, making them more enjoyable to be in. Artists and designers demonstrate ingenuity and creativity in their works, inspiring others to do the same, leading to improvements in society. Plus, the art and design produced by a culture provide insight into their values, beliefs and challenges, providing a unique record for future generations studying history, sociology and anthropology. Shop a diverse assortment of fine art on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Among the key Art Deco designers were Tamara de Lempicka, Erté, René Lalique, Le Corbusier, Jean Dunand, Léon Bakst, Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Sonia Delaunay, Georges Lepape and Jean Després.
