The book examines carefully and in great detail the theme of Albini's work as a designer, highlighting the original nature of his work which is distinctive for its strict rationality, formal reserve, geometrical order, technical perfection and the high quality of the materials employed. A rich and, to a great extent, unpublished collection of images, consisting of pencil and ink drawings, as well as a delightful collection of old photographs from te Fondazione Albini form a considerable part of the volume.

As well as being sold individually, it comes in a case with another book published in 2005, I musei e gli allestimenti di Franco Albini (Museums and Interiors designed by Franco Albini) by Augusto Rossari and Federico Bucci. The fact that they can be purchased as a set allows the reader to make an indepth study of the work as of the creator and designer of museum interiors of one of Italiy's foremost architects of the 20th century, to the point where, at times, the identification of form with structure attains the density and logic of a mathematical theorem.
