I’ve decided to do some occasional giveaways of books featured on my blog, starting with one copy of the catalog and activity guide from this year’s Exhibit Columbus, New Middles. The recipient of this first giveaway (restricted to US addresses due to shipping costs, sorry) is the first person to reply to this newsletter with the correct answer to this bit of trivia:
Which photographer documented the architecture of Columbus, Indiana, in a book subtitled “An American Landmark”?
