Format: Hardcover
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.

This review is of the BIG three volume set, not to be confused with the one volume 25 version.
You need some serious room to view these. I usually set on the bed they are that big. You can use a kitchen table as well. The only down side if you consider it that.... is that it is multi language, thus making it larger than it would have been if it had been single language only. There have been many complaints of the one volume version of this series due to the fact that publisher made everything including pictures and print smaller to fit making it not as pleasant as it should have been. Quality paper and something out of the ordinary. Hats off to the publisher for making such a bold huge series. Very heavy around 12 pounds.

Beautiful book collection, very high quality paper and linen binding. Images are spectacular. I would recommend it to anyone who loves modernist architecture.
Just be aware, it is a large book set, and very heavy.

I live overseas and I was worried about the weight and size of these books... I will say one thing: worth every inch and every pound, Julius Shulman's photographs get better with every inch.
