Used-Good. This anthology brings together seminal articles from one of America's most distinguished architecture magazines, copies of which are now extremely difficult to locate. Published and edited by John Entenza from 1938 until 1962, when he left to direct the Graham Foundation, 'Arts & Architecture' played a significant role both in Los Angeles's cultural history and in the development of American modernism in general. 'Arts & Architecture' was the first American magazine to popularize the work of Hans Hofmann, Craig Ellwood, Margaret DePatta, George Nakashima, Bernard Rosenthal, Charles Eames, Konrad Wachsmann, and many others. It also embodied the highest standard of graphic design attained by an American art magazine of its time, employing the talents of such designers as Alvin Lustig, Herbert Mattes, and John Follis. 'Arts & Architecture: The Entenza Years' maintains the large format of the magazine and includes many fullscale reproductions of the original pages. It brings together articles from the years 1943 through 1959, publishing them exactly as they appeared. In keeping with Entenza's tireless advocacy of modernism in all its aspects, the articles cover design, architecture, photography, music, and visual arts. They explore the culture that led to the famous Case Study House program, and feature industrialized and postwar tract housing, as well as houses designed by the Case Study House architects during the same era as the program. There is an introduction by the editor Barbara Goldstein and an essay on John Entenza by Esther McCoy, who wrote for 'Arts & Architecture' through most of Entenza's period as editor. Barbara Goldstein is Planning Coordinator for the Los Angeles Endowment for the Arts, a program of the City of Los Angeles, Cultural Affairs Department. She was publisher and editor-in-chief of 'Arts & Architecture' magazine from 1981 to 1985. This anthology brings together seminal articles from one of America's most distinguished architecture magazines, copies of which are now extremely difficult to locate.
