Most beautiful book of the year!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Edgar Miller and the Hand-Made Home: Chicago's Forgotten Renaissance Man (Hardcover)
Chicago is a great architectural city know for the some of the most creative and groundbreaking design. It is nice to see a book that delves into the life and work of one of the lesser known. Anyone who has wandered the streets of "Old Town" knows these buildings and has wondered who designed them and what they look like inside. The mystery is solved. The team of Richard Cahan, Micheal Williams, and Alexander Verikoff have created a book that brings these building to life. Not only have they written a compelling snapshot of the life of Edgar Miller and Chicago but they have captured the exterior and interior of the buildings with such passion and detail. I don't know of any other book that gives us a shot of an interior and then gives us another few pages of full-bleed details of the room. The high resolution photos are the best I have seen in years. It is by far the most superior book on architecture/design in 2009.
