Bernard Maybeck Architect

PhotobucketWe attended a book signing Sunday of Bernard Maybeck Architect of Elegance by publisher Gibbs Smith.  The author Mark Wilson and Joel Puliatti the photographer are friends of our family.
The book signing and presentation was at a Bernard Maybeck home not far from our house.  It was lovely home and a treat to be able to see the interior of a Maybeck home.

 I have photographed quite a few Maybeck homes over the years. They are not easy to photograph and Joel did a beautiful job.  His interior shots are amazing.
 I have known the author Mark Wilson for almost 30 years and he is an expert on Maybeck and so knowledgeable on architectural history. We worked on two books together. The first book was a architectural walking tours book called Living Legacy and was published in the nineteen eighties  and more recently the book Julia Morgan Architect of Beauty. Joel photographed all of the interiors and I photographed the exteriors and details for the Morgan book. That is the last big job we did with film....
