This book is one that I've lusted for over the years and wanted for my collection. I finally broke down and purchased it last year. And it is worth every penny I spent. The book is filled with incredible photographs of beautiful buildings. I would recommend it to anyone interested in this style of architecture. As the old saying goes - they don't make them [buildings] like that anymore.
This is a huge book,10.5"x13.5"x1.25" thick. Hardback but with no dust jacket, instead the cover is colored printed. It was published by Taschen. The book is broken down into five chapters:
1. Entertainment and Culture - Variations on Monumental Lyricism
2. Science and Technology - Power and the Dramatization of the Future
3. Sports and Youth - The Architect's cosmic Dream
4. Health and Resorts - From Seaside Phalansteries to Hidden Villas
5. Rites and Symbols - Theatricality as a Vector of Emotion
Plus, there is a forward by Paul Smith, and an introduction by Frédéric Chaubin.
