Edith Heath considered her dinnerware to be more than a collection of simple objects; rather it was a commentary on good design and what she believed indicative of West Coast lifestyle in post-World War II America. The eighth title in the Berkeley Design Books series, *Edith Heath: Philosophies* emphasizes lesser-known narratives in essays by 15 artists and scholars, and utilizes rarely-seen images from the Brian and Edith Heath collection from the Environmental Design Archive, University of California, Berkeley.
