This is a very elegant little book (4.5 inches square) about a very interesting, cutting edge glass structure. The glass palace at Leipzig is perhaps the most significant glass structure since the Crystal Palace in 1850. (The Crystal Palace is still the more remakable in many respects.) In spite of its small format it is crammed with interesting detailed information regarding the project and many photos and sketches. Guess the concept was to have the smallest book in the world about the largest glass palace in the world. Still, I can't help but wish it was in a 12x12 format, like the Phaidon publications. The font is very small and dificult to read, and much of the detail in the drawings is lost. However, a must read for anyone interested in modern glass architecture. I'd love to build one in the U.S.!
