I glanced at it tonight at Borders and it looks graphically pleasing, much like Palm Springs Weekend. I have asked to wife to add it to the Christmas list.

Duno if I can wait!

If there is a textbook for this course listed as, "Modern 101" this book by Alan Hess, "Googie Redux" is it. Perhaps there is a tandem "serious" architecture and design book out there to stack atop this "fun stuff" tome.
Any suggestions?

Joe:

"Graphically Pleasing" seems to be the measure by which I weigh my own book buying decisions.

I saw Ranch House yesterday at Borders and added it to my own wishlist. Do you have anything to report on the text? I did not have much time to browse.

I also grabbed an Atomic Ranch while there. Nice Job!

SDR - Appreciate the additional book list possibilities. It's asking much to expect 2 books to cover an entire era, style, philosophy ect. sure. That Googie Redux volume just seems to sum up about half of the term Modern to me.

Copies of Googie Redux have started showing up on ebay. With the postage, my copy will cost me $16.51 -- not the greatest saving...but considering the number of books I buy...

PS We'll be in LA 12/31-1/6; have been to the float decorating areas in Pasadena before Jan 1, and to the display of floats on Jan 2, but have never been to the parade, to which we're thinking of going this year. We'll be taking the Gold Line metro to Pasadena. Will we be able to see anything from curbside? Should we buy tickets for seats? (I generally dislike crowds, but like to try everything once: Doodah Parade, Hollywood Xmas Parade, Halloween in West Hollywood...)

Uh, funny you should mention that. I'm working on the history of Wilshire Boulevard book with author Kevin Roderick and have been with the project for over two years. It is being published by Angel City Press and, if all stays to plan and schedule, it will hit bookstore shelves in August 2005.

Since I'm gathering pics and history for this book, I guarantee the photo selection will be wonderful. The hardest part will be selecting the best from the best as we may only have room for 200 images; with photos and ephemera from over 100 years of Wilshire's history, they are all quite shocking.

Keep your ears to the ground for the Los Angeles Conservancy's driving tour of Wilshire Boulevard coming in the Fall of 2005.

Good luck and please be sure to let us know here when it's available.

PS Let me guess who'll be doing the Conservancy bus tour.
