BOOKS

A&A all boxed up

October 11, 2008|From a Times staff writer

Scan the magazine racks today, and it's hard to imagine any title achieving this feat: More than 50 years after they were published, 118 issues of Arts & Architecture have been reprinted as a limited-edition boxed set -- 10 books, 6,076 pages in all. Every bit of content from 1945 through 1954 has been reproduced, starting with Editor John Entenza's announcement of the Case Study House program and his call to reinvent the modern American residence. The publisher, Taschen, says the printing will be limited to 5,000 numbered sets; they will arrive in stores next month and retail for $700. Part 2 of the reprint, covering 1955 to 1967, is expected to follow in late 2009 or early 2010.
