PERSPECTA 1: THE YALE ARCHITECTURE JOURNAL. 1952 First Issue with 56 Pages Design by Norman Ives. Norman Carver [Editor]: PERSPECTA 1: THE YALE ARCHITECTURE JOURNAL. New Haven, CT: Departments of Architecture and Design, Yale University, Summer 1952. Perfect-bound and side-stitched stiff, printed wrappers. Design by Norman Ives. Wrappers lightly worn and rubbed, but a very good copy. 9.5 x 11.75 journal with 56 pages heavily illustrated with original artwork, photography, plans and diagrams with a few trade advertisements. Limited circulation and uncertain financial backing have combined to make the early issues of Perspecta notoriously difficult to locate. An excellent opportunity to acquire a significant piece of American architectural history. Training for the Practice of Architecture by George Howe. The Evolution of Wright, Mies and Le Corbusier by Henry-Russell Hitchcock. Frank Lloyd Wright: Church for the First Unitarian Church of Madison, Wisconsin (2 pages with 3 black and white photographs). Paul Rudolph: 7 pages with 9 black and white illustrations of the Eugene Knotts Residence and the Kate Wheelan Cottages. Philip Johnson: 3 pages with 6 black and white illustrations of the House on the Hudson. Buckminster Fuller: 9 pages with 7 black and white illustrations of The Standard of Living Package. Michelangelo’s Fortification Drawings: A Study in the Reflex Diagonal. The Architecture of American Commerce. Monumental Architecture by Henry Reed, Jr. Founded in 1952, Perspecta is the oldest student-edited architectural journal in the United States and the first that devoted its pages to the artistic, historical and theoretical aspects of architecture. From its earliest issues, essays published in Perspecta changed the way people thought about architecture. Highly recommended for both form and content. “The publication of Perspecta marked the beginning of a new kind of critical discourse about architecture, ” said Robert A. Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture. Although Perspecta was never a mass-market publication, its impact on the field has belied its numbers. The journal was — and continues to be — an intellectual showpiece for the Yale School of Architecture and an important presence in the design community.
