Description du livre Princeton Architectural Press. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. État : New. We can virtually guarantee that flipping through this book will kindle a yen to visit your favorite reading room. Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize winner Robert Dawson has crisscrossed the United States photographing public libraries large and small, documenting those in danger of closing or curtailing their hours of operation. From a majestic reading room at the New York Public Library to the one-room Tulare County Free Library, built in Allensworth, California, by former slaves (as well as unconventional examples like Berkeley's tool-lending library and the first Little Free Library), these 100 color and 75 black and white photos vividly capture the inspiring atmosphere of a room full of books—and what we stand to lose without a commitment to our libraries. Here too are essays, letters, and poetry by such writers as Anne Lamott, Amy Tan, and Barbara Kingsolver, with a foreword by Bill Moyers and an afterword by Ann Patchett."This collection of photographs and texts of and about libraries—grand or dead, faded or sumptuous—make up a narrative that combines the public sphere with private memory. Robert Dawson's work is an irrefutable argument for the preservation of public libraries. His book is profound and heartbreakingly beautiful."—Toni Morrison"This beautifully crafted book celebrates public libraries across the U.S. in both color and black and white images captured by photographer Dawson over an 18-year period. Artfully arranged in such chapters as 'Civic Memory and Identity' and 'Literature and Learning,' the book includes a foreword by Bill Moyers and an afterword by Ann Patchett. Dawson goes beyond the physical structures and touches on how viscerally and nostalgically Americans feel about public libraries, and suggests that, as a culture, we depend on them more than we know."—Publishers Weekly"If you think all public libraries look pretty much the same, well, you need to take a look at this book. Oh, sure, there are plenty of grand ones, such as Philadelphia's own Central Library on the Parkway. But we also have the Fishtown Community Branch, featured in this volume, which used to be a firehouse and, before that, a stable. There's also the log cabin library in Cable, Wis. And many, many more, both grand and humble."—Philadelphia Inquirer 192. N° de réf. du libraire 70617

Description du livre PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. État : New. 231 x 206 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many of us have vivid recollections of childhood visits to a public library: the unmistakable musty scent, the excitement of checking out a stack of newly discovered books. Today, libraries in America also function as de facto community centres. And yet, across the country, cities large and small are closing public libraries or curtailing their hours of operation. Over the last eighteen years, photographer Robert Dawson has crisscrossed America documenting hundreds of these endangered institutions. The Public Library presents a wide selection of Dawson s photographs- from the majestic reading room at the New York Public Library to Allensworth, California s one-room Tulare County Free Library built by former slaves. Accompanying Dawson s revealing photographs are essays, letters and poetry by some of America s most celebrated writers. A foreword by Bill Moyers and an afterword by Ann Patchett bookend this important survey. N° de réf. du libraire AA29781616892173
