Howard Myers [Editor]

Howard Myers [Editor]: THE ARCHITECTURAL FORUM. Jersey City: Rogers and Manson, Inc. [Volume 64, Number 6, June 1936]. A nearly very good vintage magazine with wire spiral binding and lightly rubbed wrappers. Very faint dampstain to lower interior corner of textblock —no stickiness or skinning to pages—and no editorial text or images affected.

8.75 x 11.75 spiral-bound magazine with 188 pages of editorial content showcasing the Architectural and Industrial Design of the American Streamline Moderne Machine Age aesthetic. There are also an excellent assortment of vintage trade advertisements that espouse the depression moderne streamline aesthetic quite nicely.
