Chronicle Books, (1993), First Edition A collection of photographs of the enormous variety of decoration and street elevations of the infamous "stucco box" apartment building type constructed in Southern California in the mid-twentieth century. A light-hearted but important documentation of this type of building which replaced the Spanish revival bungalow as the vernacular dwelling, and which will in turn be replaced by something even more nightmare-ish. First edition. 17.5 cm; unpaged [approx. 400]; illustrated from photographs. A fine copy in laminated boards, published without a dust jacket. Fine Hard Cover 0811840247 (Item ID: 012436)
