Welcome to Modernism: The very best of the first five years of the groundbreaking architecture magazine
“A&A was instrumental in putting American Architecture on the map.”
—Julius Shulman

In the decades after World War II, however, A&A covered not just architecture but also art, music, and politics, in brilliant, bold and enthralling reports. Thanks to John Entenza, who headed the magazine for two decades, this ambitious project produced a magazine that set whole new standards.A&A featured the greatest architects of its time, including Richard Neutra,Rudolph SchindlerEero SaarinenCraig EllwoodJohn Lautner,Charles & Ray Eames, and Pierre Koenig. Two of America’s most internationally successful architects, Frank Gehry and Richard Meier, were introduced here for the first time. Among the contributors to the magazine were the photographers Julius Schulman and Ezra Stoller, the authors Esther McCoy and Peter Yates, and the cover designers Herbert Matter and Alvin Lustig.

The complete facsimile of Arts & Architecture was published by TASCHEN in 2008 as a limited Collector’s Edition. This new selection brings together all the covers and the highlights from the first five years of the legendary magazine and is an impressive contemporary document of modern American architecture.
