More Holiday Gift Books

As an addendum to my list of Holiday Gift Books posted over the weekend, below is a baker's handful of desirable architecture books I found while browsing New Metaphor Books, a new website that bills itself as "a curated collection of exceptional rare, out of print, and unusual books on graphic design, art, architecture, fashion, and film." I assume there is only one copy of each title, so hurry up and get 'em if the price is right (click links to see more photos inside the books, read about the books and their condition and see the prices).

Cinegramme Folie: Le Parc de la Villette, Bernard Tschumi (1987, first edition)

The Gulf, Rem Koolhaas, OMA/AMO (2006, first edition)

Brodsky & Utkin: The Complete Works (scarce 2003 edition)

Architecture 2000: Predictions and Methods, Charles Jencks (1971, first edition paperback)

Oppositions Reader: Selected Readings from a Journal for Ideas and Criticism in Architecture 1973-1984 (1998, first edition hardcover)

The Danteum, Thomas L. Schumacher (1986, first edition hardcover)
