Want This Box Set

If you like to read or just really dig mid-century architecture and design, this needs to be on the top of your list. Arts & Architecture was a magazine published for a short period of time from 1945 – 1967 and was a key instrument in the Case Study House Program. The magazine covered not only architecture, but art, music, social issues, and politics. This may be a bit of a stretch, but I liken it to Dwell Magazine. This is the first of two box sets that is available from Taschen. This set is a whopping 118 issues that covers 1945 – 1954, 10 years, 10 boxes. Each is exactly like the  original publication right down to the advertisements. The box set is limited to 5000 for a mere $700.00. I did the math and it comes out to about $6 an issue. So this is definately affordable. The last set will be released sometime in 2009 – 2010. You can find out more about it here.
