Architecture Books – Book Fair Edition
This week on A Weekly Dose of Architecture Books:
Yesterday I visited the New York International Antiquarian Book Fair, which is at the Park Avenue Armory until Sunday. As in last year and in March 2020, the first year I went to the fair (and my last event before lockdown), I browsed the booths trying to find some books on architecture and related subjects. Here’s what I found.
Architecture Book News:
Architect’s Newspaper reports that MoMA has acquired the nearly 60-year-old MIT Press colophon, the (perfect, IMO) design by Muriel Cooper from 1965. I’m surprised MoMA didn’t have it in its collection already.
Bookseller reports on the shortlist for the inaugural Architectural Book Awards organized by Booklaunch magazine. (Not to be confused with the inaugural Architecture Book of the Year Award, both of which are in my blogroll).
The latest episode in BWAF's New Angle: Voice podcast series is "The Art We Must Live With: Ada Louise Huxtable and Architecture Criticism."
The Spring '23 issue of Constructs from @yalearchitecture, in which I review the #SOSBrutalism show that was on display there last year, has books on the back cover: "Books are back on desks, photographs by Annika Babra and Julie Chan":
