I have never seen that magazine! This is what I wanted to do with my Architectural Record magazines, scan and post the ones out of copyright. Just have to find the missing ones from 1950-1960.
Make modern your own, don't trust others to- it's our future.

The OC "Birth of the Cool" exhibition, referenced at

had several of the magazines' covers presented in frames, as part of the furniture and objects display.

They did have cool graphics.

uh oh...... it's official... will get no work done this afternoon...

Damn you, Rockandlounge! (with a John Stewart intonation)...

By the way, I have the CASE STUDY HOUSES book and it's awesome as a coffee table book to go back and enjoy over, and over, and over, and over (and over) again. Kinda expensive, but worth the price ($126 at Amazon)
