A fittingly huge tribute to the man who captured Modernism in western America and especially in California. I thought the beauty of these three large books (check out the weight and dimensions in the Product Details section) was the way they are organized: historically using Shulman's own job reference numbers. Obviously there is not going to be a photo of every commission because a lot of his time was spent on what he calls 'bread and butter work'. So book 1 starts with #0003 in 1939 with Gregory Ain's Scheyer residence in LA and book 3 ends in 1981 with #5976 Augustin Hernandez's studio in Mexico City. Although Shulman is working again, with German photographer Juergen Nogai, the contents of the three books are based on the 250,000 negatives he presented to the Getty Research Institute upon retiring in 2004.

I get the impression looking through the pages that there maybe more interior photos than exteriors and what a visual treat these interiors are. In photo after photo there is a sense of spaciousness so typical of most modernist houses and many of the shots show how rooms extend into other living areas.

The interiors from the Forties to the late Seventies also yield a fascinating opportunity to study the furniture and fittings the owners thought would work well in a modern home. Because of the large page size some of these domestic interior photos are twenty-three inches wide on a spread so the detail is amazing. Another interesting point about a Shulman photo is the addition of people in his work. Apparently frowned upon by architects in the past he took the view that it was an opportunity to reduce the purity (and possibly elitism) of Modernism in a domestic setting.

Truly a Magnum Opus. Not just the well-known Case Study houses, but everything from motels to delicatessans.
The only problem is the books are so large it's hard to view them without laying them on the table and looking at them while standing - they're worth the effort though! If I didn't have them, I'd buy them again.

This is one of the nicest books I've ever seen and definitely the nicest I've ever bought. I love Mid Century Architecture and therefore I feel like in paradise as soon as I open this book. I look at it over and over again. If you order Modernism Rediscovered, make sure you order the edition you really want, because there are different versions as well as a calender available. The full edition costs quite some money, but its worth every cent and I want to express my thanks to Julius Shulman, the editors and the publsiher for this masterpiece.
