Meet the AR at magCulture in London on Thursday 24 January to find out more about our long illustrious history
From libraries and archives to the architecture of text itself, this month’s bumper issue asks whether books and words shape architecture just as much as buildings. We meet bookmaker Irma Boom and publisher Lars Müller, visit the libraries of Clorindo Testa and Alberto Kalach – as well as the buildings for books included in our AR Library award shortlist – and invite you into our Book of Books, filled with features inspired by books both old and new.
