From the end of WWII, emerging architects focused on innovative projects that integrated low-cost materials and modern design, most notably embodied in the Case Study House Program, championed by the era’s leading journal, the groundbreaking Arts & Architecture. This collection comes in 10 boxes, each with a year’s worth of A&A magazines from 1945–1954 reproduced in its entirety. Limited to 5,000 numbered copies, this set provides a comprehensive record of mid-century American architecture and brings A&A back to life after 40 years.

118 Magazines in 10 boxes. 6,156 pages. Includes a supplement booklet with an original essay by former A&A publisher David Travers; plus a master index and tables of contents for the magazine from 1945-1967. Multilingual edition. English/French/German/Spanish.

David Travers was publisher and editor of Arts & Architecture from 1963 to 1967. Travers worked as a consultant for architects and was also a founding member of Action for a Better Los Angeles. He served as president of the Architectural Guild at the University of Southern California. He lives in Santa Monica.

Arts & Architecture 1945–1954 will be followed by a second set, 1955–1967 (not included) bringing together all the existing issues of the modern era.

It’s hard to imagine that publishing juggernaut TASCHEN began life as an 18-year-old’s comic book shop. Founded in 1980 and still helmed by Benedikt Taschen—an art lover who believes in the democratization of the art-book market—TASCHEN is now a worldwide leader in art book publishing, best known for its superb subject choice, text, design, and high-quality printings.
