David Stark is one of New York's most creative and sought-after event designers. This book explores forty of Stark's elaborate yet eco-friendly events-corporate, non-profit, and private-with 200 exquisite photographs and descriptive text. Organized according to the designer's quirky phraseology "Animate the Inanimate", "Don't Take It So Seriously . . . At the End of the Day, It's a Party", "From Many Little Things Make One Big Thing", "It's Not What You Use, But How You Use It" and "Make Packaging the Prize"-this book is unique in both its presentation and its content. Stark considers his events "art installations" and when guests enter his spaces, that is exactly how they feel-surrounded by the kind of creative input and passion that can only be described as art.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
