Observations on American Architecture

By Ivan Chermayeff

Photographs by Elliot Erwitt

Copyright 1972

Published by The Viking Press

Hardcover

143 pp

First ed.

From the front flap:

An exciting presentation of architectural forms, new and old, as they exist in the United States and as photographed by one of America’s most eminent photographers. The book, which brings together a cross section of distinguished buildings from coast to coast, is a visual experience rather than a history or full survey of American architecture, the intermixing of styles and forms purposely emphasizing the timeless aspect of good design. Some of the examples included are the work of renowned architects, omers [sic] are by anonymous architects, but all, as presented and described on these pages, have a special meaning and message for readers interested in American architecture.

Ivan Chermayeff analyzes some of the forces that produce good design and influence new developments, and Elliot Erwitt, in his superb photographs, shows structures from all regions of the country and of many types — houses, apartments, churches, schools, warehouses, barns, bridges, museums, factories, offices, and public buildings — the the Indian pueblo to the skyscraper.

Gorgeous photographs by Elliot Erwitt, the majority in color. There is foxing on the end pages. The dust jacket shows a bit of wear. It is otherwise in very good vintage condition. All vintage items are sold as is, final sale.
