History and Design of an Icon
One of the first icons to pop into my mind were; the streetcars, the Transamerica Pyramid, Alcatraz, Lombard Street, the Presidio and The Golden Gate Bridge.
I found this little book in the Edmonton Public Library and found it to be very informative. What surprised me the most was the complete lack of archival photos; the book was illustrated completely with original sketches. These drawings proved to be very informative and clear but I would have liked to have the sketch and a photo to make the examples stand out.
In any event the book proved to be up to date and complete; it touched on every subject I was interested in.
I'm glad I read it.
