Forget Paying Taxes, Come To Chicago and Spend!

329auction.gifIf you’re in Chicago tomorrow, or on April 25th, and you’d like to give a poor UnBeige editor some money so he can bid on things he definitely doesn’t need, but desperately wants, you’ll find him at the Wright20 “Books on Modernism” auction. Talk about some fantastic stuff. There’s a series of Bill Owens’ “Suburbia” monographs, a “Skyscraper Furniture Catalog” from the 30’s by Paul T. Frankl, and ninety-two issues of Arts & Architecture magazine, from 1950 through 1967, among countless other drool-worthy treasures (just don’t drool too closely). You can take a look at the full preview on the site, and then register by phone, fax in a bid, show up in person, or even sign up online. It all goes down tomorrow, starting at 10am, at 1440 W. Hubbard. Sounds like a blast. Next auction is “Branded Luxury” which sounds kinda snooty.
