Originally published in 1909, this book contains a guide in English and French to the sculptures of Chartres Cathedral. The text is illustrated with over one hundred photographic plates of the sculptures, with an explanation for each in both languages on the facing page. Some of the photographs included are among the earliest published examples of telephotography. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in French medieval sculpture, the cathedral at Chartres or the history of photography.
Continuing the theme of the previous two Small Spaces books, Mimimum Space Maximum Living M2 by Philip Jodidio is a new look at a variety of small spaces from around the world that includes not only intriguing residential projects, but retail, commercial, and other spaces as well. Ingenuity is the common trait that makes all these spaces work, despite their physical constraints. Floor plans, drawings and detailed photographs throw light on the architect's clever and carefully considered responses to the many challenges posed by restricted spaces. Text in French and English.
