New from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, a book that situates midcentury California style in its original context. Published to accompany a major museum exhibition of the same name, Living in a Modern Way: California Design 1930-1965 is a comprehensive look at midcentury modernism in California. It examines art, architecture, furniture, and more to illuminate the influences that created the uniquely Californian school of design; the book also examines how the state influenced design in other parts of the world.
