Gorgeous book. Great pictures and analysis of this kind of architecture in California. It profiles about ten houses and gives a little history of the style and vernacular as well as aspirations of the original owners and architects. The focus of the photography is mostly on detail shots. For some of the houses, it was exclusively detail shots. This book would have been even stronger had it shown the entire outside of these houses in one shot. Highly recommended.
This book is mainly photographs--not a lot of text. The architecture and photographs are beautiful.
