New book finds
Architects Make Zigzags: Looking at Architecture from A to Z
This is tucked away for a certain architecturally fascinated child in my life. The alphabet instruction includes columns, windows, facades, eaves, gables, iron work, and quoins (large or conspicuous stones set into the corners of outside walls.) The black and white illustrations are detailed and beautiful.
Shakespeare's Insults: Educating Your Wit
The perfect addition to the restroom bookshelves.
