Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern Postcard Book
03 Oct 2013

The mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs, California, photographed by Dolly Faibyshev, is presented in 32 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.

Dolly Faibyshev began her photography career with Palm Springs - Mid Century Modern. Since its publication, she has explored themes of Americana within the spectacle of dog shows, rodeos, and Las Vegas.
