You’re Invited to the Gordon B. Kaufmann Book Signing September 21st!

00011956Please join Marc Appleton, Bret Parsons and myself in celebrating the publication of our new book on one of the Southland’s greatest architects Gordon B. Kaufmann. Published through Tailwater Press, this volume is the first in our series on the Master Architects of Southern California 1920-1940. It is richly illustrated with spectacular vintage images highlighting two dozen of Kaufmann’s major projects such as Greystone mansion in Beverly Hills, the Isador Eisner house in Hancock Park, CalTech’s Atheneaum in Pasadena, and the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia. We are so proud of this project and would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating an architect whose influence on the built-environment of Southern California is still being felt today.

    Where is the book available for sale? The Tailwater Press sales email is invalid.

    Steve,
    I bought the book as soon as I discovered it. I am a big fan of the architecture of the “Golden Age” in Los Angeles residential architecture. I have been a Landscape Architect for 30 years and have the opportunity to design gardens for many upscale residences by Paul Williams, James Dolan and recently an estate in Montecito designed by Gordon Kaufmann. I am obsessed with Los Angeles architecture of the 20’s-40’s. I have long looked for a book celebrating the architecture of Morgan, Stiles & Clements. They have created some of the most iconic architecture in Los Angeles from Spanish Colonial to Streamline Art Deco and there is, to my knowledge, no monograph of their works. If you are to create a series of books, may I suggest a collection of their work. I would pre-order today. Been a follower of your blog for some time.

      So happy to know a fellow lover of 1920s-1930s SC architecture! And I’m happy to report Morgan, Walls & Clements is on the list of future volumes! Well deserved for sure.
