Palm Springs Holiday This is the story of Palm Springs in its golden years, a city that had it all, including marvelous midcentury Modern architecture, fabulous fly-in hotels, and a swinging nightlife. Through vintage photographs, postcards, and other ephemera, Palm Springs Holiday recalls the Palm Springs area from the 1910s through the 1960s, where people vacationed in the desert, dined, danced, and lounged poolside...

Fun Look Back 6 novembre 2009
Par Tom Dolle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Peter's book is fun and breezy, showing lots of great ephemera from Palm Spring's glittery past. The mid-century vibe is more on the kitschy side than the serious Julius Shulman-photographed books on the superb architecture in the area. It shows how middle class vacationers of the 50s got a taste of desert high style and a glimpse of Hollywood glamour. Sure to be a Palm Springs classic!

A Nostalgic View of the Coachella Valley 1 avril 2010
Par T. Karr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Palm Springs Holiday" is a fun ride through the desert city's past through photos, post cards, and other promotional items. I found myself chuckling at some of the wry asides provided in the captions.

This book will be enjoyed by anyone who loves the Coachella Valley or anyone who just likes to look at post cards from the mid-twentieth century.

Interesting and fun, but needs reformatting. 10 novembre 2013
Par Drew Jansen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I very much enjoyed this book, but the digital version is riddled with problems. Pictures get diced up, captions refer to pics two pages later, et cetera. Too many distractions give me pause.

Do not buy the Kindle edition 31 juillet 2013
Par J. Paulsonn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a fun book, but do not buy the Kindle edition. Pages are chopped up in weird ways, and illustrations are not kept together with the descriptions. It's just a mess. When in PS, I saw a copy in a book store and it's much much easier to appreciate on paper. Some books just weren't made for Kindle.
Approachable for any level of interest. 16 août 2012

My copy of Peter Moruzzi's last gem just arrived and come September I'll have a complete set!!

While more moderate in scope than his book "Havana...", a bible for those interested in the socio-political construct that was Havana before the Cuvan Revolution, "Palm Springs Holiday" offers the subject matter the same in-depth treatment, absolutely saturating the reader in the culture and color of the time.

This gorgeous tome BRIMS with fabulous images and stories, serving in many cases as the sole unifying historical record of a time and place that was such an incredibly massive part of the "American Experience" of the period.

Moruzzi, an art historian and expert on mid-century 'modern' architecture, sprinkles architectural history throughout every chapter of the book, offering lively discussion on styles from Spanish Colonial Revival to Rustic Ranch, but his chapter dedicated to 'Desert Modern' styles and techniques, influences that would become so very prominent in much if the rest of the country in the third quarter of the century, provides the reader with a depth of understanding uncommon in what may initially be seen as a coffee-table book.

Whether intentional or not, Mr. Moruzzi treats this subject with more personal input than his previous book. That is to say, one gets a sense, going from page-to-page, less of reading an historical analysis on the art and architecture of the times, and more like they are listening to an educational newsreel (possibly one produced by the Chamber of Commerce?) on the Coachella Valley area. If this rowdy, delicious book had been assembled by anyone else I don't think it would have come off as well as it did, but the author does such a splendid job of setting the stage and pulling the characters together (the hotels, the visionaries, the scenery) that it would almost seem academically-heavy if not for his occasional tongue-in-cheek observations. .

Why not 5 stars? Simply put, while a terrifically interesting look at a colorful, sometimes pivotal, often kitschy period of sun, fun, and fashion, I don't personally see it as a 5-star subject, and that's okay. Mr. Moruzzi's presentation through photos and stories truly brings this corner of history to life. The book is just a joy, and makes me anxious for his next offering. (Which I've already per-ordered, by the way...)
