WRITING

Once the gallery closed, there was time to pursue other projects and one such pursuit was writing. Between 2012 and 2014, Murray completed two major books - one on the House of French crystal producer Baccarat, and the other on the House of the Danish silversmithy, Georg Jensen, both published by the venerable Italian firm, Rizzoli. In that same period, a boutique publisher of art books, August Editions, published Tertium Quid, a book featuring Murray's collection of vintage press photographs. A third book for Rizzoli, a memoir written by Moss and Getchell about their experiences at MOSS, is slated for a Spring 2018 release.

Based on the success of the books, there were extensive additional consulting contracts with both Baccarat and Jensen, and also book signing tours to Europe and to China.

From November 2014 to December 2019, Murray has written "PS", a column of observation and opinion on design and everything else. It occupied the last page of the book. Here are a couple of those columns.
