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.Read more ›
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.
Just be aware, it is a large book set, and very heavy.
