arts & architecture

 "arts & architecture" magazine has to be one of the best publications of mid-century design. It was published monthly by John D. Entenza. It featured the best architects, furniture designers, and artists of the 40s, 50s & 60s. All the heavy hitters, Richard Neutra, Case Study House 21 by Pierre Koenig, R.M. Schindler. Covers designed by John Follis like the example above and Charles Eames just to name a couple. I recomend if you are into mid-century design try to get your hands on this magazine, grab yourself a cup of joe and have a nice read!!!

Julius Shulman in Infrared

Here is an interesting infrared photo by Julius Shulman taken somewhere in the Claremont Colleges. This is a scan of the original photo. I'm not to familiar with his infrared work. Most of  his work that I have seen are with black & white or color film. It's kinda cool to see it in this format.

A lot of people have issues with bamboo because of it's evasive personality but rightly contained it can create strong vertical lines and make quite a statement to a landscape and great for screening too. I plan on planting some bamboo this summer, wish it could start off looking like this though!

Scandiline Industries Factory Clean-Up Sale Flyer

Factory clean-up sale I would have loved to go to, too bad I wasn't born yet.....This flyer was mailed out from Scandiline Industries, Inc. located in Compton, Ca 1975. The other side of the flyer reads, Bargains from $1.50 to $569.00 in fabric, leather, oak, teak, walnut, rosewood and chrome. I would have been first in line for this one!
