A slightly flawed but still glorious book. As another reviewer mentioned, floor plans of these wonderful homes would have been a nice addition, and there are mysterious disconnects between some of the narrative and the images accompanying it. And bedrooms seem largely overlooked for some reason. But overall, I was thrilled with the opportunity to see inside, and around the architectural heart of these beautiful homes. A definite 5-star rating recommends.
   Excellent book!
It is a shame that an architect is not as much re-established in the architectural world as others in the field. This man was ahead of his time and a genius who fought such descrimination in a field that is still mostly white and male.
   Clint's Notes
This is the third in a series of presentations on the work of the African American architect Karen Hudson, all done by his grandson, Paul Revere Williams. They are all worthy of note, with this one being very notable for the delicate photography and fine presentation of details of William's work. Mr. Williams is perhaps the most prestigious of the few African American architects who have passed or especially his rich contributions to the Los Angeles area residential design. His work is very elegant and clear. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in residential architecture. The period from 1920 to the 1950s, especially to anyone interested in becoming familiar with the outstanding contributions of African Americans to the rich history of this country's pioneers in design.
   Interesting read
If interested in Hollywood history, this book provides an informative background of a somewhat unknown legend in L.A.'s architectural legacies and homes that are not normally open to the public.
   A beautiful and interesting book
Very interesting book on a classic Hollywood architect, especially given the context in which he was working and the hurdles he had to overcome with great success.
I chose the book by theme architecture from the beginning of the twentieth century, but it was disappointing because there are only a few photos of each house. There are floor plans and texts are superficial and treat more of the story of the residents of that architecture.
