Reviews - What do customers think about And Guide Chicago: Architecture & Design (And Guides)?
The Chicago not normally scene. Dec 14, 2005
This was a really nice little book I found in the downtown Chicago Borders. It was in a section about Chicago. It's good because it showcases a side of Chicago most normally don't see. Specialty businesses, local shops and lodging all in unique locations and surroundings.
Yes there are the few big sites to see, but for the most part this is about building structure and design in the off the beaten path of Chicago. It's nice to see the great Millennium Park in a publication.
The descriptions are a great detail to these gems of Chicago. They describe what the business is, where they are located and what they have to offer. Not only that, but incredible photos that surprisingly pop off the pages of this little 5 inch square book. The rich color and detail of such unique places makes you feel like your right there in it.
After discovering this book, I found that this publisher/author has more. It seems they did several cities around the world, just like this one. I will be looking into those as well.
Nice coffee table reading.
Great stocking stuffer for those into Chicago, architecture and shopping!
