Capital Houses Book Launch
Capital Houses: Historic Residences of Washington, D.C. and Its Environs 1735 – 1965 shipped to the publisher in November 2015 and the reception of the book has been really gratifying to see. Thanks to Acanthus Press who did a nice job of producing the book and to all of the property owners who gave me access to photograph this amazing collection of homes.
Back in October of 2012 I announced that I was taking new photographs for a comprehensive survey of the most important historic architecture in Washington, D.C. for publication in book form. Including my new photography, as well as a selection of archival images (see dramatic image of the White House being gutted in the 1950′s) my colleague James M. Goode has written the text, including the most up-to-date scholarship on these well known (and not so well known) examples of built artistic expression. We now have an October 2015 publication date and, having seen the beautiful page layouts from Acanthus Press in NYC, are sure that our efforts will be well represented in print. More info as time draws near on availability, book signings, lectures, etc.. (photograph courtesy White House Historical Association).
