Le Corbusier and the Maison Jaoul.

Other great chapter titles include "In Search of Authenticity: The Genesis of the Project."

"Le Corbusier on his terrace at the rue Nungesser-et-Coli apartment, Paris, holding a terracotta pitcher in the shape of a goose."

Le Corbusier & The Maison Jaoul.
Princeton Architectural Press, 2009

Le Corbusier designed 2 houses in Paris for the Jaoul family in the fifties but scholars and people who like him tend to gloss over these lovely houses. Princeton Architectural Press put out this book last year to try and rectify the situation. It has amazing photos covering all sorts; the houses, the plans, book covers L.C. designed at the time, pictures of himself and others...oh, just all sorts. Well worth a looksee.
