I can live with the slightly fuzzy 1960's period photos but the thin paper and flimsy cover is not good and makes this book poor value.

The other newer Ellwood books are better or perhaps it is worth investing in the original hardback edition.

This book is very poorly (cheaply) produced - the images look like they have been scanned and are very feint - very disappointing.

A Xerox copy of the original 8 Jun. 2011
By Jeffrey Klas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's probably been 35 years since I looked at the original edition of this book. Perhaps time blurs one's impressions. But not this much. That this is a reprint doesn't excuse the awful quality of the photo reproductions. It looks as if the original book was taken to Kinko's with instructions to produce a thousand or so bound copies on cheap paper. Bingo! There you have it.

Ellwood's architecture needs crisp, finely legible images to convey the simple forms in a true manner. This edition provides none of that. It's a shame. The subject and content are worthy. The presentation isn't.

Cool then, cool now. 21 Jan. 2002
By Jeff Ellwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a teenager I was awed when this book about my father was published. I have one of the original copies which I value very much. It is gratifying to know that there is a resurgence of interest in Craig Ellwood's work so many years later. If you are a fan of his work, or if you want to get a good feel for Southern California architecture of the '50s and '60s, you will want this book. (OK, so I am biased! It is still a cool book.)
