HOMES: SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE
Thomas Creighton, Frank Lopez, Charles Magruder and George Sanderson: HOMES. NYC: Reinhold, 1947. Second printing from 1949. 4to. A near-fine hardcover book with a near-fine dust jacket: mildly age-toned edges and mild foxing to prelims -- very nice indeed. Interior unmarked and clean. Out-of-print. A superb copy of this unusual volume, which features on of the best dust jacket designs for any Postwar American Residential Architecture anthology.
9 x 12 book with 190 pages and 285 b/w photos and 100 floorplans and diagrams showcasing premier Postwar American architectural structures. This book spotlights some of the lesser-known structures of the period, thus supplying a more unique perspective than similar volumes that tend to showcase the iconic residences. Interior photography by Stoller, Bill Hedrich-Blessing, Joseph Molitor, Julius Shulman and others.
