One of our pictures was recently published in the Journal of Architectural Education. Sure, they got the attribution wrong in the caption (despite our best efforts) but it’s still pretty cool to see our own Angry Beaver and a Portland Building tin make the big time.
This isn’t the only publication we expect to be in, there should be an article on Hans Wegner ’Wishbone’ chairs coming out in a special edition of Ambiente from BURDA Magazines, where another of our pictures will make it’s international debut.
Not bad for a scrappy little non-profit blog eh?
We’ll take this as an opportunity to thank you all for keeping us in business, for helping us make money so that we can help folks in need in the community.
If you find a picture of ours that you’d like to re-use in a publication give us a shout, we’re pretty willing to let you. If not please keep reading, or give us a hand up as we help others by supporting us through the Willamette Week Give!Guide*.
We’re wrapping up the holiday campaign season, the Give!Guide Closes at midnight tomorrow and the moring after it’ll be 2013.
However, in celebration of our notable publishing event, we’re offering a copy of Frozen Music: a history of Portland architecture by Gideon Bosker & Lena Lencek.
Why should anyone care? Well, besides that this book shows illustrations and details of some of Portland’s “great” buildings it also explores the idea that Portland is “an architectural microcosm whose successes and failures can be applied to the planning strategies and architectural evolution of other American cities.”
Too true, for good or ill.
It is a readable copy and we have the dust-jacket too.
*As someone who regularly commits crimes against grammar and felonies of punctuation (I admit there is some erratic comma usage around here) I have to say that the Give!Guide exclamation point without spaces drives me nuts. However, it’s a good cause so let’s not let it be too distracting.
