Phaidon's Le Corbusier LeGrand

Le Corbusier (1887-1965)

Phaidon'€™s massive monograph (about 20 pounds) on the multi-faceted designer and architect, LeCorbusier, will be released on July 2, 2008. The beautiful, but heavy book (in the style of Warhol “Giant Size”) comes in a slipcase and includes a supplementary book of translations and transcriptions for all the original documents archived within the book. Le Grand was compiled by the Phaidon editors and includes an intro essay by Jean-Louis Cohen.

The monograph is packed with rare photographs, urban plans, sketches, and letters between Le Corbusier and other prominent design figures.
