New Eichler Book

Does anyone know if it's available yet?
I know they had 100 copies at the event up north.
Haven't seen any postings regarding it on either Eichler network forum.

Yes it is! I got mine via UPS yesterday. While I have only flipped through a dozen times (so much eye candy!), it looks like a good read for anyone interested in modern tract homes from the 50s and 60s, not just Eichler owners.

M-M needs to add it to the must read list!

You can buy copies of the book at Zipper on 3rd Street near Robertson Blvd. It is about 3-4 blocks east on the south side of the street. I saw some there for sale today.
