I have had an interest in architecture for many many years, but I seriously began exploring different architectural style as I worked on The American House Styles of Architecture Coloring Book. I learned so much, not only from the book but from the research I did along with it. I believe I have all or most of A.G. Smith's house/building coloring books. I absolutely loved the story of Fallingwater, and have several other histories of Frank Lloyd Wright creations.
Dover has a huge selection of books on architecture, as literature, picture books and text books with lots of pictures, coloring books, and books with CD-ROM. I am also including fiction where architecture plays an important role in the story. One by one, they will make their appearance on this site as a review, and or course will be listed on this particular index, so check back often.
