Some words on it from the publisher:

The author, John Hill, is the founder of the hugely influential architecture blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, which recently shifted course to focus entirely on architecture books of all kinds. His selection for this volume spans centuries, continents, and genres to include Le Corbusier’s Towards a New Architecture, Project Japan by Rem Koolhaas, Atlas of Another America: An Architectural Fiction by Keith Krumwiede, X-Ray Architecture by Beatriz Colomina and Thomas Wolfe’s From Bauhaus to Our House. The books selected are organized into the categories of Manifestos, Histories, Education, Housing, Monographs, Buildings, Exhibitions, Building Cities, and Critiques, and each one has a reproduction of the book’s cover along with selected spreads which are accompanied by Hill’s informed, personal, and engaging take on what makes the title unique and indispensable. In addition, sidebar “Top 10” lists from many of today’s leading critics and architects are scattered throughout. Capturing the best of Hill’s insightful and curious mind, this invaluable resource will broaden the world of anyone interested in the field of architecture—and provide irrefutable arguments for these works’ continued relevance.


"John Hill's Building in Print will make you dream. Abundantly illustrated with a history of iconic books, it will make the reader want to own a copy of every one of the 100 books displayed in his masterful selection."—Bernard Tschumi

"Architects need books: books are architecture.
An inevitable combination and a brilliant collection"—Irma Boom
