Learning From Las Vegas
Cambridge: MIT Press, 1972. First Edition. An exceptional copy of an exceptional book, probably the most important architectural publication of the last fifty years, often described as the manifesto of architectural post-modernism. A fine copy in the printed tissue dust jacket, showing only slight wear; in a custom clamshell box. The book’s design was widely praised at that time, as well as since. If not for the seismic influence of the work itself (although not universally accepted, given controversy and disagreement over its observations, conclusions, and view), it would be celebrated for this alone.
