I have wanted to publish a list of ‘must have’ architectural books for a long time. Since I am not an architectural historian, I asked my friend, Michael Mesko, if he would help me assemble a list of interesting and useful books that would help all of us better understand buildings by observing them with a more educated appreciation and critical eye. Michael is a Notre Dame educated architect who specializes in Classical and Traditional design. He has worked for many of the most important classicists we know and read about; Robert A. M. Stern, Gil Schafer, David Easton, Franck & Loshan, Ferguson and Shamamian and many others.

- Updating your Bath in 2015:
Look to fashion for current trends; textures, printed fabrics and colors.
Use gray as your neutral this year, in warm tones or cool.
Choose stones with more surface activity and texture.

The resurgence of Unlacquered Brass remains strong due to versatility. Polish to keep pristine or leave to patina.
