Styles of Living
The Best of Casa Vogue


First edition, published by Rizzoli in 1985, of this classic interior design book, “Styles of Living: The Best of Casa Vogue”

Making appearances in these rooms: Gae Aulenti, Man Ray, Enzo Mari, Carlo Scarpa, Pablo Picasso, Josef Hoffman, Cinzia Ruggeri, Max Ernst, Wols, Matteo Thun, Ettore Sottsass, Le Corbusier, Salvador Dali, René Magritte, Lucio Fontana, Eileen Grey, Daniel Buren, Gaetano Pesce, Charles Eames, Verner Panton, Massimo Vignelli, Andy Warhol, Frank Lloyd Wright, Antonio Tapiés, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Alver Aalto…..

“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”

Schindler
by David Gebhard

First edition (hardcover) of this first in-depth book on architect Rudolph Schindler, published in London in 1971.

The Los Angeles-based architect R.M. Schindler (1887 Vienna – 1953 Los Angeles) is regarded today as one of the central figures of the Modern movement. Trained in Vienna under Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, Schindler then migrated to Los Angeles under the apprenticeship of Frank Lloyd Wright. Surrounded by a clientele of progressive thinkers in the emerging intellectual culture of Hollywood, Schindler created a radical and intensely personal architectural conception, resulting in some of the seminal works of the twentieth century.
Gebhard’s Schindler, first issued in 1971, is the only full-length account of Schindler’s prolific yet unfulfilled career. Illustrated heavily throughout with photographs of Schindler’s buildings and interiors, his plans, schemes and projections.
Chapters are: Preface by Henry-Russell Hitchcock; New worlds and old; American apprenticeship; The years with Wright; Opportunity: California in the twenties; Theories in practice; The making of a personal style; Schindler’s ‘de Stijl’; The depression: a new clientele; Living space; Modern versus Moderne; Business commissions; The uses of wood; The final phase; Schindler’s place in architecture.

Charles Moore said, “David Gebhard’s book about Rudolph Schindler was, for me, the most moving story of an architect that I have read since I was astonished at an early age by Frank Lloyd Wright’s autobiography.”

Includes a preface by Henry-Russell Hitchcock.

* Condition: Very Good-Fine (with very good dust jacket only light wear, tight/clean book throughout) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Rare tenth issue from 1975 of this now classic 1970’s architectural series, the great GI (Global Interior) from Tokyo, Japan.

One of the finest interior architecture journal series ever published, GI “The Series of Global Interior” came from the producers of the highly esteemed GA (Global Architecture), GA Document, GA Houses, etc. architectural publications.

GI was produced throughout the 1970’s in a total of ten volumes. Each large volume highlighted a selection of architectural projects by renowned international architects, some volumes focusing on a specific architect entirely, and highlighted their work for houses and domestic spaces.

Beautiful architectural photography of house interiors, exteriors and room details of living spaces, along with texts (mostly in Japanese) and floor-plans/elevation drawings make up the profiles on each featured building or environment. The visual generosity of these handsomely designed and printed journals (each more a book than a magazine) make them a treasure for any architecture or interior design enthusiast or collector.
