original colorforms set November 20 2011

we're a bit nerdy when it comes to things like this,  and when we came across this 60th anniversary edition, we had to have it.  it's now a permanent fixture on my coffee table.  something about the 50's always speaks to me... 

released in 1951, this limited edition "captures the essence and creativity of the mid-century generation".
