I love architecture and how could I resist after seeing my beloved lost Bulova tower on the front cover? The star is Raymond Biesinger's illustrations, with further descriptions of the building's materials and style and mention of the historical significance of the building.

This is a treasure.

Each building is described in a short paragraph or two plus a black drawing of the outline of the building. The name of the architect if known is given as is the street address so one could visit the site or at least have a look at it on Google Maps.… (més)
