The Simple Heart of Plywood, written and published by 1934, is the first book to showcase the work of British furniture maker Gerald Summers. His small workshop, Makers of Simple Furniture, operated for less than ten years from 1931 up until the outbreak of World War II. The company unfortunately went bankrupt as the import of Estonian birch plywood became restricted. The design of the book showcases Summers' furniture design across a range of tactile paper stocks with a mix of single- and full-colour printing.
