Le Corbusier’s buildings have long been part of the inalienable canon of twentieth-century architecture. But Le Corbusier’s work as a book designer and author is scarcely known. He planned and realized over 40 books in his lifetime. Architect of Books shows that Le Corbusier accorded great importance to books as an essential part of his output. Catherine de Smet traces the process by which these books emerged and makes it possible to discover the great construction architect as a book artist. New images and in-depth analyses make Vers une Architecture du Livre an indispensable complement to Le Corbusier, Architect of Books.
