John Lautner, Hammer exhibition catalogue, 20 April 2011
This book contains four essays by Jean Louis Cohen, Frank Escher and Nicholas Olsberg. Cohen places Lautner's work in an international Architectural context, where Escher and Olsberg, curators of the exhibition, focus on specific aspects of Lautner's work. Escher was editor of Lautner's own monograph from 1994 and has been taking care of the John Lautner archives for decades. One cannot find more dedicated writers than these three who made a book with the love and care that the subject deserves. Knowing Lautner's work this book (and the exhibition) turned out to be a goldmine for never published material and grants for hours and hours of study material. Just buy it and enjoy.
