[nice clean copy, just a tiny bit of edgewear, minor scuffing to rear cover]. (B&W photographs) The bulk of this issue is devoted to two topics. "Photography and Architecture" features a guest editorial and five articles focusing on that topic, including an interview with Ezra Stoller, and discussions of Walter Benjamin, Le Corbusier, and Violett-le-Duc.

Shigeta of Chicago, by Christian A. Peterson; and an article about the photography, by Margaret Bourke-White and Henri Cartier-Bresson, of Gandhi's funeral in 1948.
