This is an outstanding “Map of the Homes” and photo guide for some killer post-war architecture in and around Los Angeles.  Much of it is VERY Hollywood Hills.  “Bugs Bunny Modernism,” basically.  🙂

Below is the complete museum program for “The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor” by Christie’s.  I picked this up on the last of the 4 dates in Los Angeles at MOCA at the Pacific Design Center this past Saturday.  Please note this is NOT the actual auction catalog, this is only what is currently touring before the big auction in December.  There are 5 complete auction catalogs available at the bottom and they go up to $75 each or the complete boxed set for $300.

This is an 8 page touring catalog printed on card stock.  The original scanned size is 8 3/4″ x 11 1/2″ and aside from cropping a few scanned edges, no further alterations were done to these pages.  These are basically color thumbnails and not high resolution pics, so I’m afraid this is as good as it gets at 1,200 dpi.  I have some better photos elsewhere on this blog, site is at the bottom.
