Pictorial boards, 271 pp., illus. (some col.); 15 x 24 cm. SIGNED by: photographer Jeff Brouws & coauthors Joel Jensen & Wendy Burton/title page, otherwise as new. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Essayists include W. Burton, B. Caron, M. Frauenfelder, J. Jensen, M. Mark, P. Patton, A. Rapp, L. Sante, and D. J. Waldie. Everyday Americana and vernacular architecture: farms, houses, drive-ins, pickup trucks, gas stations, signs, freight cars, trailers, bowling alleys, storage units. "Jeff Brouws has crisscrossed the country for two decades, documenting an America that is at once quintessential and peculiar. Readymades is a quirky, multi-layered catalog of this ascendant photographer's work: partially painted pickup trucks, bowling alley signs, vibrant-hued houses that defy the monotony of the suburbs, abandoned drive-in movie theaters. Brouws treats his subjects as readymade art found in the landscape, brought together to create an idiosyncratic roadside panorama. Provocative essays by leading writers and cultural commentators such as Luc Sante, DJ Waldie, M. Mark, Diana Gaston, Bruce Caron, and Phil Patton are juxtaposed with these images of all that is unique in the uniform, and striking in the mundane. / Jeff Brouws who has been photographing American culture over the last 15 years. His previous books include Highway: America's Endless Dream and Twenty-six Abandoned Gasoline Stations. He lives in upstate New York." - Publisher.

Shaping the City: New York and the Municipal Art Society, Gilmartin, Gregory F.
17 Gilmartin, Gregory F.
Shaping the City: New York and the Municipal Art Society
New York Clarkson Potter 1995 051758574X / 9780517585740 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
xii, 532 pp., [48] pp. of plates, illus., maps, bib. notes, index; 25 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Small remainder mark (ink dot)/top edge. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket, with light shelfwear, protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "The Municipal Art Society was founded in New York City in the wake of the World's Columbian Exposition, when the Great White City in Chicago ushered in a new conception of what American cities could achieve through coordinated planning and the collaboration of the nation's best classical architects and artists. In 1890s New York, much of the population lived in apartments that had no toilets; developers considered it their inalienable right to build a skyscraper on a twenty-foot lot; and graft, not need, determined the city government's construction priorities. If this situation has changed, we owe it less to the councilmen and mayors who enacted legislation than to the citizen activists who persuaded them to do so. Shaping the City is a stirring account of a century of just such citizen activism, not a dry institutional history but the inside story of city government as it affects the physical environment. We know of MAS today as the organization that led the fight against overdevelopment at Columbus Circle and the battle to retain the honky-tonk character of Times Square. but in its early days. MAS was the guiding force behind the City Beautiful movement. Its members built the city's great classical ensembles, and they ushered in a golden age of municipal architecture with their designs for bridges, park pavilions, monuments, even lamp posts. MAS was among the first organizations to demand the introduction of zoning to New York. It also pioneered the concept of community planning and undertook the seemingly hopeless task of protecting landmarks, persuading Mayor Robert F. Wagner to sign the Landmarks Preservation Law -- a model for the rest of the nation. In these pages, Gregory F. Gilmartin has looked beyond the narrow scope of architectural history and focuses instead on the people, policies, and politics that shape the cityscape. He is frank in his portrayal of politicians and dirty tricks and encouraging in his portraits of citizens and programs that have made a difference. Shaping the City is addressed not only to those who are specifically interested in architecture, art history, parks, preservation, and urban history, but also to the more general reader who loves cities but is disturbed by the destruction of neighborhoods and the overwhelming scale of new developments. The book is especially valuable as a demonstration that the political process can be made to work for the public interest. The result is not nostalgia, but will convince readers that they -- as the Municipal Art Society has done and continues to do -- can participate shaping the agenda for the future. / Gregory F. Gilmartin is the coauthor of New York 1900 and New York 1930, which was nominated for the National Book Award in 1987. He lives in New York City and is currently a designer with Peter Pennoyer Architects." - Publisher.
