'Arts and Architecture 1945 - 1949' Book by Taschen
A visual celebration of post war Californian modernism.
This generously sized, weighty tome is a spectacular re-issue of the first five years of the legendary L.A. magazine that defined the Californian modern aesthetic - 'Arts and Architecture'. It's a celebration of one of the most unique and influential times in the history of American architecture and design, with a special focus on the Case Study House Program and its luminary pioneers including Neutra, Schindler, Saarinen, Ellwood, Lautner, Eames, and Koenig.
The stunning book is packed impressive photography of many now iconic homes alongside colorful graphics and period advertisements for leading furniture and design companies like Knoll and Herman Miller. It's a visual extravaganza but also contains a lot of of interesting articles for those that want to delve deeper into the history of modern architecture and design.
