Format: Hardcover
This exclusively black & white and copiously illustrated hardcover survey of 26 major works from 1919 to 1958 was published in 1960 by George Braziller in English on only 128 pages. A text part on 23 pages with two illustrations is followed by 80 pages mainly with very good and only B&W photos, but also hard line plans, sections, elevations, and models. On several pages at the end of book, there are a biography, writings, list of works, bibliography, etc. Most of only B&W illustrations are photos of a good quality, well balanced, crisp and legible. Like all from the Masters of World Architecture/Makers of Contemporary Architecture series, it is solid among architectural monographs, while having only slightly bigger and sharper photos than in the comparable Studio Paperback series published by Birkhäuser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zürich)/18740* (London), and slightly smaller than in the the Library of Contemporary Architects/Masters of Modern Architecture series.
