THE ANATOMY OF THE ARCHITECTURAL BOOK. Andre Tavares. Centre Canadien d'Architecture, Montreal, 2016. Published in association with Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich. 400 pp. with 360 ills. (257 col.). 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783037784730 In English.
Publisher's description: Architectural bookmaking has been exposed to disciplinary debates, just as building construction has been exposed to the charms of book culture. Dissecting a wealth of books through five conceptual tools, Andre Tavares analyzes the material qualities of books in order to assess their crossovers with architectural knowledge. The detailed history of Sigfried Giedion's Befreites Wohnen and the two incarnations of the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park and Sydenham provide a background that confronts us with the configuration of the book as a unique visual device.
