"Mielziner: Master of Modern Stage Design, authorized by the Mielziner estate and published in association with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, is illustrated with sketches and fully rendered designs never previously published, and graced with a foreword by former New York Times theatre critic Frank Rich, this book provides a long-overdue, definitive account of Mielziner's life and work as the preeminent theatre artist of his time."--Jacket."
