Description Garland Reference Library of the Humanities (Vol. 127) From the Introduction: What exactly is a "Thumb Bible"? It has been variously described as an abstract, an epitome, a summary, a synopsis, a paraphrase, or an abridgement of the Bible…. It is an attempt to summarize the entire Bible within a tiny volume written for children. It may be in prose or in verse or even in pictures, but it is a condensed version of either one or both Testaments, usually the latter, but it is not a complete book of the Bible nor is it a book of Bible texts or quotations.
Description Miniature books -- that is books not more than 3 inches (76 mm) in height -- have always fascinated booklovers. A good number of manuscript volumes still exist, but this history begins with the advent of printing. It tells their story, from the Officium Beatae Virginis Mariae printed by Mathias Moravius in Naples in A.D. 1486 to the present time when new printing methods, and perhaps a growing belief that small is beautiful, have greatly increased the number of enthusiastic collectors.
Description With bibliographic descriptions of each book arranged by publisher. This is a book about miniature books, defined as not exceeding three inches in height or width, published in the United Sates in the 20th century. It is also about those who published these books. Specifically, it is about 335 publishers and more than 3,300 miniature books.
Description Principally from the Collections of the American Antiquarian Society and the Lilly Library, Indiana University. Miniature books, defined as three and one-quarter inches or less in binding height and width, reflect the history of the book in the United States of America. The present volume presents bibliographic information on 1,625 miniature books published in the United States from 1690 to 1900 inclusive. This bibliography provides the basis for discussing the more than 300 miniature book publishers. It also supports an overview of the development of the American book as reflected in its smallest examples.
Description The variety of subjects that appear betwene thse tiny covers is as diverse as that found in full-size books. Why would the world's literature, art, and history be published in miniature? Portability and accessibility are certainly two answers, but there are also compelling reasons for printers, artists, and binders to create intriguing volumes in a scaled-down size, and for collectors to possess these intricate and aesthetically pleasing objects. This is the first lavishly illustrated, authortiatve volume on the delightful subject of books no taller than three inches.
Description A Collection of References Pertaining to Miniature Books. Annotated bibliopgrahic citations of books, bibliographies, catalogues, pamphlets, periodicals, articles, newsletters, book lists with prices, foreign language references, and miscellaneous newspaper clippings.
Description The miniature book as a separate class of book to be collected…was not recognized until the last half of the 19th century when the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, owned a collection of miniature books, reported to have contained between 1800 and 2000 volumes. Thus the documented history of collectors and collections of miniature books really covers less than a hundred years. However, references to individual miniature books have been found during all periods of recorded history.
Description "Galley proof" of Kastra: Architecture and Culture in the Aegean Archipelago. To be updated with a revised, published version in Fall/Winter 2017.
The book at hand, “Kastra: Architecture and Culture in the Aegean Archipelago,” is a sequel to “The Aegean Crucible: Tracing Vernacular Architecture in Post-Byzantine Centuries,” published in 2004. “The Aegean Crucible” focused on the vernacular architecture of the Aegean archipelago, while “Kastra” focuses on the collective fortification, a building type vital to survival in the region, during the thirteenth-to- eighteenth-century period. “Kastra” was also written on the conviction that what we identify today as the vernacular architecture of the Aegean islands emerged from the building of Kastra, the medieval collective fortifications of the Aegean archipelago.
“Kastra” is a book about architecture and culture, written by an architect and addressed to the general public rather than to specialists. Observations and “notes” in the form of color slides taken during repeated visits to the region form the basic skeleton of the book, which is also enriched by the helicopter-based photographs of Nikos Daniilidis.
Includes bibliographical references, index and gazeteer. Contents: Doges, Knights, Pashas and Pirates. The Aegean Archipelago. The Vernacular Response: Collective Fortifications. The Formal response: Detached Fortification Walls. The Hybrid Response: Sharing Lessons.
Description For this studio, the SFS collaborated with The International Institute of St. Louis in a call for innovative design ideas to re-imagine the former building of the IISTL located at 3654 South Grand Ave. This architectural piece was built in 1930s as a car repair and dealership, with hydraulic elevators that lifted the cars from the repair shop at the lower level to the parking at the rooftop. Later, the building was renovated into doctor’s office space until 1999 when the Institute renovated it for office space use. The studio challenge was to create an iconic adaptive reuse for the former IISTL building on S. Grand Blvd. Washington University in St. Louis, Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Graduate School of Architecture, Option Design Studio, Fall 2016, Catalina Freixas, RA, LEED AP (BD+C), Assistant Professor in Architecture Students' studio projects are in the Inclusion and Neighborhood Resilience with IISTL (FALL 2016) collection.
Description American Encounters provides a narrative of the history of American art that focuses on historical encounters among diverse cultures, upon broad structural transformations such as the rise of the middle classes and the emergence of consumer and mass culture, and on the fluid conversations between "high" art and vernacular expressions. The text emphasizes the intersections among cultures and populations, as well as the exchanges, borrowings, and appropriations that have enriched and vitalized our collective cultural heritage.

Description A team led by professor Rod Barnett has completed the Baden Community Open Space Plan. In summer 2016, Barnett and a team of research assistants collaborated with the on-the-ground team to engage residents to understand their needs. This data, combined with ecological data points, and public health assessments collected in the community, informed the proposed masterplan. In the voids created by voluntary buyout and demolition, the Baden neighborhood has an opportunity to redefine how infrastructure and greenspace can come together to create a space that serves residents. The team of partners has included the Green City Coalition, the City of St. Louis' Sustainability Office, the Missouri Department of Conservation, the Missouri Botanical Garden, and the Riverview West Florissant Development Corporation.
Description This studio explored ways in which the complexities of urban redevelopment — its many physical characteristics, actors, agendas and histories—can be generative for urban design and architecture. The 2016 spring studio comprised urban analysis and conceptualizes urban design proposals on a range of sites and scales for the arts district in mid-town St. Louis called Grand Center. Like many de-urbanized—but also revitalizing—contexts in St. Louis (and across the US), Grand Center encompasses a nexus of vacant blocks amidst prominent academic anchors and significant arts related institutions, businesses, residential neighborhoods and non-profit entities. The site is further overlaid by a mix of political, economic and regulatory overlays, but it also falls within a broader context inflected by pressing environmental and social imperatives. The studio was offered at a time when many older urban centers in the US are beginning to rebuild, leveraging (among other things) their various institutions as anchors to celebrate and build upon. Grand Center’s identity draws directly from its cultural assets: its many prominent arts and performance venues like the Fox Theater, Powell Hall, the Sheldon Concert Hall, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, the Contemporary Arts Museum, the Public Media complex, many others—all located in buildings whose unique designs are commensurate with their stature, yet largely stand as objects in a vacant landscape. It is a fact though, that Grand Center is also shaped by a number of conditions underlying all American cities: These include a context of social inequity and tensions (as activists said, “Ferguson is everywhere”); an uneven pace of economic recovery since the recession in 2008, coupled with a political economy that fiscally (and legally) constrains local governments’ abilities to implement projects and create opportunities for rebuilding. Environmental imperatives stemming from air and ground water pollution and aging sewer infrastructures, among other issues, are also impacting planning choices. While the studio embraces the myriad redevelopment potentials at Grand Center, students were also asked to come to terms with the reasons and policies that led to Grand Center’s initial de-urbanization and plight. As students mapped and conceptualized futures for the site @ Grand Center, questions of their own and others’ positionality became an important part of the design details and planning process.
