[book is flawless, with no discernible wear; jacket similarly nice, with just a trace of surface wear]. (color photographs) This book "showcases three architecturally important private residences now owned by and housing the expansive art collections of Max Palevsky. Each house has been built, restored or reworked by a well-known contemporary architect. Presented in significant detail are the Palm Springs House, by renowned mid-century modernist architect Craig Ellwood; the extravagant Malibu Spanish-style House, with interior renovations by renowned Italian architect Ettore Sottsass; and the opulent Beverly Hills House, by the most famous of the 1920s Mediterranean-style architects, George Washington Smith -- with interiors that have been reworked recently by the avant-garde [but apparently not "renowned"] California architect Coy Howard." ***Additional shipping charges for this heavy book will apply for non-U.S. customers; please inquire before placing your order.***
