Just today when I had to buy something my mum asked me to buy I went also to some cheap book stores because I saw there is discount of 30% on every book.
And once again I couldn't refrain on looking on some architecture albums. I saw some interesting positions from h.f.ulmann publishing house, like "Designer apartments", or series of books written by Joahim Fisher: Wood, Concrete, Glass, Colour, Light, Water....
And there was another one that interested me also, it was about architecture and art of Madrid, that was written in few languages together, also in Spanish that could be nice experience for me to try to read something more than my usual exercises from Spanish ;)
(To be honest, there was lots of books from this publishing house, in really cheap prices, http://www.ullmann-publishing.com/de/shop/themen/architektur-kunst/).
I promised myself I will not spend my money and collect some for new pc, but when I saw that books I'm not that sure, t's possible.... I don't know If it's only my little fetish, that great desire to have all that beautiful books... Maybe they are not always very useful, but I recently had to find interesting design of restaurants and series of "Architecture Now" helped me a lot ;) That's so nice, you can look through whole book on the internet (there are images in the size, you cannot read the text, but you can easily read the name of building and authors, so that you can search some more information on the web :)
What are your favourite albums of architecture? What's interesting in your favourite ones? Which albums would you recommend?
I ask because they are often printed in many countries, they are popular all over the world, but they are also extremely expensive sometimes.I often want to find a books that shows not only photos, but also sections, plans of buildings, some useful information...
Maybe we could recommend each other books, that we think are useful or inspiring?
Here are some books I like.
