Summertime and the Reading is Easy

The Legislative Reference Library recently purchased: Cass Gilbert, Life and Work: Architect of the Public DomainThis beautifully illustrated book examines Gilbert's work in five unique categories: the building of a national practice, an evaluation of his Minnesota State Capitol as "a defining moment" in American civic architecture, his New York career, his response to civic ideals in his plans for towns and universities, and his work in the public domain. It is available for check-out, as are the new titles below.
