Uncle Oscar's Chairs

Magnus Englund, Daniel Frost

A is for Ant ... designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1952 B is for Ball ... designed by Eero Aarnio in 1963 C is for Coconut ... designed by George Nelson in 1955 A lovely collaboration between a traditional book on the alphabet and a guide to the world's iconic chairs, written by a Scandinavian furniture expert and designed by a leading British illustrator (also nuts about chairs), Uncle Oscar's Chairs is the children's book you'll find in design stores, or the design book you'll find in the children's section of the bookshop.

Magnus Englund is a renowned interior design retailer who co-founded Skandium, the chain responsible for helping popularise Scandinavian design in the UK. He has written several books about Scandinavian design and architecture, and is a Trustee of the Isokon Gallery. The art of Daniel Frost is colourful, deceptively simple, and unmistakable. His work often blends the latest digital techniques with traditional mediums, and his unique, Oberon Award-winning art has been used by Nike, The New York Times, and Transport for London.
