The perfect gift for those obsessed with Mad Men chic is the small, smartly designed small survey of architectural images by Julius Shulman. The Getty Research Institute has put together this sweet little book from his photography archive in their special collections. Just under 5.5 x 6.5 inches, it is full of beautifully printed black and white images of Los Angeles taken between 1931 and 1986. The buildings were built between 1870 and 1981 and this disparate range of architectural styles is unified by Shulman’s single vision of presenting these achievements in the most ideal manner possible.
