RICHARD NICKEL DANGEROUS YEARS: WHAT HE SAW AND WHAT HE WROTE. Richard Cahan et al. CityFiles Press, Chicago, 2015. 264 pp. ISBN 9780991541836 In English.
Publisher's description: Devoting his life to save America's architecture, Richard Nickel was inflamed by the destruction of what he perceived to be art and disturbed by what this destruction said about the society in which we lived. Today he is remembered through the photographs he left behind as well as the thousands of notes and lettersGfunny, angry, and always eloquentGthat detail a life of passion and determination. He took risks, spoke his mind, and championed an oversized cause. His rebellion against the shortsighted disregard of an American genius, the architect Louis Sullivan, appeals to a new generation interested in conservationGwhether of old buildings or natural resources. This book is a collection of more than 100 letters and photographs that will inspire and intrigue readers.
