Thomas Creighton, Frank Lopez, Charles Magruder and George Sanderson: HOMES. New York: Reinhold, 1947. First edition. Quarto. Red cloth stamped in black. Dust jacket printed in two colors. 190 pp. 285 photographs.  100 floorplans and diagrams. Price-clipped jacket lightly soiled and worn with spine a bit sun-faded. A nearly fine copy in a very good or better dust jacket.

A nice copy of this volume, with the best typographic jacket design of any Postwar American Residential Architecture anthology.

9 x 12  book with 190 pages and 285 black and white  photos and 100 floorplans and diagrams of designs for 90 contemporary homes, organized in three sections: one-bedroom homes; two-bedroom homes; and homes with three or more bedrooms. Index of architects, designers, and locations. This book spotlights some of the lesser-known structures of the period, thus supplying a more unique perspective than similar volumes that tend to showcase the iconic residences. Interior photography by Stoller, Bill Hedrich-Blessing, Joseph Molitor, Julius Shulman and others.
