This extensive, three-volume publication pays tribute to forgotten architectural masterpieces, drawn from photographer Julius Shulman's personal archives. Shulman's photography was instrumental in crafting the image of the midcentury Southern California lifestyle across the United States and around the world. Also included are images from Mexico, Israel, and Hong Kong.

Augmenting the photographs are an introduction by photography critic Owen Edwards, an extensive biography by University of Southern California historian Philip J. Ethington, captions on decorative elements by Los Angeles Modern Auctions founder Peter Loughrey, biographies of key architects, and personal reflections from the photographer himself, and arts writer Hunter Drohojowska-Philp constructs an informative and lively oral history and portrait of the times.
