I ordered Forgotten Modern about a week ago from Amazon. It's still a pre-order, but they expect to deliver it between 9/14 - 9/17. I just can't wait for this one!

Amazon's pairing it up with another soon-to-be-published book where Hess is also the author, Frank Lloyd Wright Mid-Century Modern. This one's expected to be shipped on or about 10/23. You can read something about the Wright book .

I ordered them both, since I'm a sucker for Amazon's pairings, even though I don't save a cent. :oops:

Just got my copy of "Forgotten Modern" in the mail today. Haven't had time to start reading through the text, but Alan Weintraub definitely gave us plenty of great photos to drool over! I was particularly excited to see some interior shots of the house Paul Williams designed for Dr. Robert Williams in Ontario, Calif. (the one on the cover), which I happened to drive by one afternoon and instantly fell in love with.

Plenty of other eye candy too, of course. This looks to be definitely worth the money. Can't wait to sit down this weekend and read through the whole book!

That Shulman Palm Springs book is in conjunction with this event:

Julius Shulman Exhibition Will Debut at the Palm Springs Art Museum in February 2008

No single person has been more present for the evolution of modern architecture in Southern California, with a special emphasis on Palm Springs, than the great photographer Julius Shulman. Sensitive to light, structure and detail, Shulman is known for capturing the essential elements of architecture that have turned many buildings into icons. Because of this, it is fitting that the Palm Springs Art Museum will debut the exhibition Julius Shulman / Palm Springs in February 2008—the same year that marks the Art Museum’s and the City of Palm Springs’ 70th Anniversary.
