The mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs, California, is presented in 30 bright, colorful postcards. In Palm Springs, the desert environment and the presence of Hollywood stars inspired architects to new creative heights and created, perhaps, the locale with the highest concentration of such structures in the United States. The postcards include views of individual mid-century modern homes, detailed close-ups, city shots, and photos of such landmarks as the Palm Springs City Hall, Swiss Miss House, Elvis’ Honeymoon House, Neutra’s Kaufmann House, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Valley Station. The iconic features of mid-century modern structures found in these postcards include carports, stone and perforated walls, chalet entrances, wide driveways, and walls of glass,. The 30 postcards are perforated for easy removal, or can remain bound together as a memento of this beautiful place. Whichever you choose, enjoy the enduring beauty of mid-century modernism today!
