eBay watch: Le Corbusier 1959 Liverpool exhibition catalogue


I'll be honest, I was going to keep this quiet and bid myself on it, but the temptation to share this Le Corbusier 1959 Liverpool exhibition catalogue is too much.

It's a fascinating object. According to the seller, an exhibition of the work of the modernist architect and designer (also known as Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) was held in 1959 at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and the Building Centre in London, with this being the illustrated catalogue produced for it, featuring the architecture, paintings, sculpture and tapestries that were featured way back then.

120 pages in A5 format, it's described as being in 'fair used' condition, but there are no tears, marks or missing pages. £4.99 seems like something of a steal if you have an interest in the designer or the city.
