Last Minute Xmas Book of the Moment

I saw this massive book (14x11x3 inches @ 13.7 pounds)while doing a little Xmas shopping at a local bookstore. Published by little know German publisher (to me) Verlagshaus Braun, 1000x European Architecture is a Phaidon Atlas-esque resource with an obvious focus on Europe that presents each of the 1,000 projects on a single spread with a few images and a brief description.

According to the publisher:
Projects from all parts of the continent have been selected to create a representative overview of the latest European architecture. The great variety of European architecture is guaranteed because there is only one project presented per architect – with high-quality pictures and plans. Particular emphasis has been placed on making sure that many small creative and surprising buildings are presented alongside much-quoted “musts”.
