If you love your architecture from the mid-20th century and especially if you fancy taking some in, then you really want to secure a copy of Mid-Century Modern Architecture Travel Guide: West Coast USA, which is published by Phaidon.

A 384-page book with 250 images, it is described as the first ever handbook to focus on the ‘architectural wonders’ of the West Coast of the USA. 250 destinations have been picked out, the best modernist buildings, as well as hidden gems and ‘virtually unknown’ examples.

So everything from the iconic Case Study houses to the glamour of Palm Springs. Pretty much everything you would want from a travel guide and more, with first-hand descriptions and colour photography of the property featured making this a pretty strong reference for the style and the era too.

It is printed on 24th October 2016, but you can pre-order a copy now. It sells for a discounted £19.96 at Amazon.
