POUND RIDGE PAST now available at design solutions in New Canaan

For Immediate Release

POUND RIDGE PAST Available Exclusively in 
New Canaan at design solutions

(March 24, 2013) -- Design Solutions is pleased to announce that POUND RIDGE PAST: Remembrances of Our Townsfolk is now available exclusively in New Canaan at their store on Elm Street. The book -- written by Bonni Brodnick, with graphic design by Gina Federico and photographs by Fran Collin -- reveals what life was like from the rural 1920s to the swinging 1970s in Pound Ridge, N.Y., a beautiful town that meets the New Canaan border. The book includes first-hand accounts about attending one-room schoolhouses, the day World War II ended, a party at which Albert Einstein was a surprise guest, and tales about farmers, basket makers, artists, teachers, merchants, socialites and local glitterati.

Actors and producers, including Tallulah Bankhead, Frank Morgan (the "Wizard of Oz" himself), Buster Crabbe, Shirley Jones, Eli Wallach and Ann Jackson; writer Westbrook Pegler; radio sports legend Howard Cosell; "Tom and Jerry" cartoonist and advertising whiz Jack Zander; and violinist Florian ZaBach were just a few of the celebrities dazzling the calm of the countryside that is often referred to as "God's Country."

POUND RIDGE PAST -- now in its second printing -- was a collaboration of Pound Ridgers Bonni Brodnick (author, writer, HUFFINGTON POST blogger); Gina Federico (graphic designer, blogger on Modern houses, Modern architects and Modern design) and Fran Collin (food, celebrity and portrait photographer.)

design solutions is located at 146 Elm Street, New Canaan, Conn. / 203-966-3116 /
