Editorial Reviews

Review

"The texts are brief and informative; the pictures conjure a world of mystery and beauty." ~The Architect's Newspaper

"For students of desert architecture, this book is a great addition to any collection....Shulman's work, his instinct for composition, use of natural light and passion for line and structure, is more enlightening than being in a classroom for several semesters." ~The Desert Sun

"No design buff should forgo this photographic masterpiece." ~LA Confidential

"An appreciative, informative text only adds to the fun of exploring this book, and it contains nuggets that will delight the reader..." ~Modernism Magazine

This is just a gorgeous book. We saw the exhibit at the Palm Springs Art Museum on which it is based, and the book lives up to the exhibit. It's a beautifully photographed (of course -- Shulman does amazing things with light and contrast) retrospective of Desert Mid-Century Modern, and Alan Hess provides his usual informative commentary. A must-have for Desert Modern enthusiasts!

For any modern architecture enthusiast, or Palm Spring lover, or a fan of great photography, or all, this is the book to purchase. What a magnificent collection of photos, both in color and Black and White. The most wonderful Palm Springs houses and their lavish landscapes are all covered in this tome, leaving you with a hankering desire to buy your own mid-century mod home in the Desert and move there for good. Do yourself a big favor and Just Buy It !!!!!

Also, if after reading this one, you want to see more of Julius Shulman's gorgeous work, get yourself his "Modernism Revisited" masterpiece, which you will love as much as his Palm Springs book reviewed here.

Excellent new book on Palm Springs architecture. The final statement on John Lautner's contribution to Palm Springs architecture finally does just to this exeptional architect. For a book of this quality the price is obscenely low.

The book was new in perfect condition. Julius Shulman's photography and the authors detailed writing captured a cross section of the Mid-Century Modern Architecture of the 5o's.
