I’m glad Phaidon did this book. If it turns out like the one they did on Castiglioni ($1500 used now!!), I better get one sooner than later.

Why is the TP-1 not on that list? My favorite Rams design… Is there a limit? I might submit a few…

No limit to my knowledge Julius, a little more about the event:
