The book's layout echoes the arc of Lautner's career from Frank Lloyd Wright acolyte to the unique spatial magician by slowly subverting the book's rigid grid over the course of the book. Gradually, the images and text create open space and flow across the pages in the same organic, intuitive manner Lautner's homes did.

Between Earth and Heaven: The Architecture of John Lautner is a monograph created for the Hammer Musuem's exhibit featuring Lautner's work. It is the most scholarly analysis of the architect's work to date, and so the book strikes a balance between this research and the architecture's visceral qualities.
