Harry Gesner's work is awesome! And Lisa Germany did an excellent job of portraying not only Mr. Gesner's work, but his exciting life and family as well. This book is enjoyed by all my guests who find it on my coffee table!

Format: Hardcover
Harry Gesner's book reveals his fantastic architectural vision. An amazing world of modern ideas that has been hidden from most. Unless
you were lucky enough to drive by one of his LA or Malibu homes and wonder gaze you have missed out. Or like many thousands like me cranking their head up the bluff as they drive down the PCH seeing the Eagle's Watch house. Always thinking Wow! Who did that!

But the true stories behind the architectural work and mixed within Genser's life make you ponder just as much as his vision.
It's more of an adventure architectural book really. Some of the events and people would make this a great read without
the fantastic photo's.......

One of a kind...

This book is a gorgeous representation of Harry Gesner's ethereal, architectural masterpieces. Not just a reflection of Harry's work, this book tells Harry's incredible life story. Quite simply, this is one of my favorite books now.
