If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ve probably seen the cover of my latest book, Buildings in Print: 100 Influential & Inspiring Illustrated Architecture Books, numerous times. Now a copy could be yours. If you live in the United States (sorry, shipping costs are too high to send one overseas), just reply to this email with the name of the one architecture book that influenced you the most; I’ll then randomly pick one of those replies as the winner. I’m curious what architecture books are important to people who get this newsletter — and hopefully I’ll learn about one or two in the process. Reply before Sunday, December 19, for a chance to win.
Thank you for subscribing to A Daily Dose of Architecture Books’ Weekly Newsletter. If you have any comments or questions, or want to see your book on my blog, please respond to this email, or comment below if you’re reading this online.
