Get to know one of 20th-century architecture’s most idiosyncratic practitioners, Paul Rudolph, through a man who knew him well: John Morris Dixon, FAIA, a contributor to ARCHITECT and the editor-in-chief of Progressive Architecture from 1972 to 1996. Dixon’s Paul Rudolph: Inspiration and Process in Architecture ($24.95) includes a new essay by the author, a 1986 interview with Rudolph, and dozens of sketches and other matter from the archives of the Library of Congress. Not surprisingly, given that it was published by Moleskine Books, the 144-page volume looks just like one of the iconic sketchbooks—rounded corners, ribbon place marker, and all.
