This book documents the historical, technical and cultural forces that shaped the development of this distinctive West Coast building type. The authors's in-depth research and analysis is enhanced by the inclusion of numerous plans and technical drawings. Julius Shulman's sensuous black-and-white photographs document the range of courtyard styles—from simple bungalow-style dwellings to more ornate buildings combining Italian, Spanish, and North African influences. From the library of Old House Journal.
