Major new purchase: Arts and Architecture magazine 1945-1954

The Library has just purchased the Taschen reprint of the entire 1945-1954 run of the magazine 'Arts and Architecture', filling a significant gap in the journals collection. This groundbreaking publication was instrumental in putting American architecture on the map and championing the Case Study House Program. It featured many of the great architects of the era, including Neutra, Schindler, Saarinen, Ellwood, Lautner, Eames and Koenig, with contributions from leading photographers and writers. Arts and Architecture can be consulted in the Mackintosh Library between 11am and 12 noon on weekdays during term-time.
