[brand-new book, but with a couple of very slightly bumped corners; jacket is flawless]. (color and B&W photographs) Survey of the mid-century houses of architect Edward H. Fickett. "Fickett's innovative designs were profoundly in sync with Los Angeles's ascendance from second city into one of the world's great metropolises with innovative postwar tract houses, glamorous garden apartments in Hollywood in the 1950s, and ambitious houses in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and Malibu spanning from the 1950s through the 1980s. [This book] is not only a portrait of a beloved architect's enduring work, but also of a place and time that continues to capture the imagination." ***Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order.*** .
