If you love ruins and abandoned places

Then you might want to read this review of a new book that sounds so “me” it jumped straight to the top of my to-read list.

I love Phaidon, publisher of fabulous picture books for grownups. Like DK,  my other fave picture-book publisher, Phaidon is headquartered in London. Their new book, Ruin and Redemption in Architecture (by Dan Barash), has a ship date of March 29 (tomorrow) if you order it directly from Phaidon. Very pricey to do that, though ($59.95).

Otherwise, you can order from Amazon, but the book won’t be released/shipped until April 17. At a cost of $37.39, though, a savings of almost 40%, I guess that’s worth the wait.

    Ooooo…this looks terrific! Don’t you think it’s funny they don’t have a pic on the cover?
