Synopses & Reviews
As the first comprehensive encyclopedic survey of Western architectural theory from Vitruvius to the present, this book is an essential resource for architects, students, teachers, historians, and theorists. Using only original sources, Kruft has undertaken the monumental task of researching, organizing, and analyzing the significant statements put forth by architectural theorists over the last two thousand years. The result is a text that is authoritative and complete, easy to read without being reductive.
"Siminovich's latest is two board books in one: a gentle, curved die-cut separates the lower left corner of the book from the rest of it, so that each section can be thumbed through separately. The larger portions of the pages feature adult animals, including a giraffe ('You reach high for a treat') and a crocodile; their babies are pictured in the smaller 'book,' and all the animals are portrayed in cozy textures of burlap and cloth. When the pages are opened in full, it's almost as though the elder animals are encircling their little ones with hugs a clever and reassuring effect. Simultaneously available: You Are My Baby: Farm. Up to age 4." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
