i think that this is the tail end of the Hispano-Beaux Artes movement here in California. it continued, but never to the degree of lavishness it reached in Sta Barbara w/ the biltmore. people probably realized that deco could be cheaper to reproduce. ?? i like the ads in the brochure, but the landscaping is really amazing - although i wonder whether any of the gorgeous oaks survived all the lawns around them. i've never visited the biltmore in sb, so i don't know...

    My name is Kelly and I work for a design firm in Chicago. We are working on a gallery show about a hotel (The Samarkand) in the Santa Barbara area and would love to feature this grand opening brochure for the Biltmore if possible.

    Are you still in possession of it? Would you be interested in selling or allowing us to professionally photograph it for reproduction? And if not do you know of any others we could get a hold of?

    Please let me know, we'd love to hear from you. Thank you.
