Portadas del vintage magazine...

Radiating a spaciousness to match that of its magnificent view, the home of Arthur Elrod, AID, nestles in splendor in the excavated rock of a splintered desert ridge - if a 5,700 square-foot house can be said to "nestle". Built specifically for the desert, the residence is much more than the sum of its materials and site. Dramatic, charged with surprises, frankly self-indulgent, consummately finished and elegantly appointed, Elrod's elegant eyrie might be the ultimate Palm Springs home: June 1962   ABOUT THE COVER: Palm Springs and the Desert Empire have long been favored as backgrounds for national products in advertisements. The prestige that accrues to these famous products and brands who 'marry' the exciting gracious desert way of life has a mutual benefit.

The June cover shows an exciting new product, Studebaker's Avanti for 1963, at Eldorado Country Club in Palm Desert.:
