The Crowning of the American Landscape Eight Great Spaces and Their Buildings Walter L. Creese "Creese's book is heroic in its ambitions. His erudition--architectural, historiographical, and literary--is astonishing and yet most gracefully and 'organically' displayed. His illustrative materials are exquisitely apt and often very moving." --James Marston Fitch, Professor Emeritus
, Columbia University
In a book that celebrates the artist -intellectuals who have made our natural spaces particularly intriguing, Walter L. Creese analyzes the historical essence of eight renowned American sites and their architecture. In the first part on large spaces, he demonstrates how designers of unusual sensitivity, Thomas Jefferson
, A. J. Downing, and F. L. Olmsted, developed Charlottesville, the Hudson and Yosemite Valleys, and Mount Hood National Forest. The second edition reveals four "hidden," smaller places as solutions to mundane challenges. The analysis of the Boston Fens, a facsimile coastal marsh, Graceland, Chicago's landscaped cemetery, Chicago's enclosed Riverside suburb, and finally, Wright's Taliesin Valley yields new insight into architecture's role in uniting landscape with human goals. 320 pages. 16 color illus., 138 halftones, 8 maps. 7% x 10". $55.00 A t yottr bookstore or 41 William Street Princeton University Press Princeton, NJ
The Public Landscape of the New Deal Phoebe Curler In the first book to examine the landscape architecture of the New Deal era, Cutler provides a lively history of the diverse landscape projects administered by the National Emergency Works Program -- among them Timberline Lodge, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the San Antonio canal system, the San Francisco Zoo, and scores of parks and playgrounds. Her vivid account of the creation of these "artifacts of hard times" provides fresh insights into the rise of the profession of landscape architecture.
Available in paperback Discovering the Vernacular-Landscape John Brinckcrhoff Jackson A pioneer in landscape studies takes us on a tour of landscapes past and present to show how our surroundings reflect our culture. "No one who cares deeply about landscape issues can overlook the scores of brilliant insights and challenges to the mind, eye, and conscience .... It is a book to be deeply cherished and to be read and pondered many times." Wilbur Zelinsky, Landscape

HUMANSCAPE: Environments For People by Stephen Kaplan and Rachel Kaplan
HUMANSAPE provides a unique perspective on humans and their relationship to the environment. It provides an informantion processing point of view, but one that is more synthetic than is traditional. Here, territory and privacy, stress and coping, even aesthetics, are related within an informational framework. HUMANSCAPE deals with the uncertain environment in which humans find themselves and views this uncertainty as both a problem and a challenge. For while uncertainty brings with it the threat of confusion, it can also provide the opportunity to test one's skills, to, venture, to explore.

U.S. 40 Today THIRTY YEARS OF LANDSCAPE CHANGE IN AMERICA Thomas R. Vale & Geraldine R. Vale In 1953, George Stewart published a compelling photographic record of his cross-country journey from Atlantic City to San Francisco. US. 40 was immediately acclaimed as a minor classic, unique in conception and important in its penetrating analysis of America's natural and Cultural Landscape
. Now, thirty years later, geographers Thomas R. Vale and Geraldine R. Vale have retraced Stewart's probing tour across the highway, documenting their own voyage of discovery with an updated series of photographs teach, paired with Stewart's original, shot from the same location} and commentary. The result, as keenly observed and recorded as the original, is both a perceptive assessment of landscape changes in the United States over the past three decades and a spirited, inspiring, and distinctly American travelogue. We follow the Vales' progress- from Atlantic City through Baltimore, Columbus, Kansas City, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Reno, finally reaching land's land highway'st end at San Francisco--with pleasure and involvement, partners in a rediscovery of a transformed, yet sometimes mysteriously immutable, America today. Thomas R. Vale is Professor of Geography at the University of Wisconsifi-Madison. He has contributed articles on American ecology and landscapes to a number of scholarly and environmental journals. As evidenced by this work, he is an inveterate traveler, an accomplished photographer, and a sharp observer of the American landscaPe. Geraldine R. Vale is a teacher of English and geography in the Madison public schools
. Her work has appeared in the professional literature. 1983. 208 pages, 147 illus., maps. Cloth $27.50; paper $14.95 University of Wisconsin Press 114 North Murray Street, Madison, Wisconsin 53715
ASLA Publishes: Perspectives: An Effective Design Tool PERSPECTIVES: AN EFFECTIVE DESIGN TOOL By James E. Hiss, ASLA The presentation of Technical Guidelines
in this book is made in an informal and lighthearted nature with graphics that clearly communicate the concepts without losing technical effectiveness. This unusual book presents new perspective concepts through simple graphic associations while it builds the reader's understanding with familiar, yet challenging drawing techniques. It differs from any other book on the market in three important ways because it represents: Ї a highly effective light technical approach to the basics of perspectives Ї a new and remarkable simplified system for preparing accurate perspectives an essential strategy for increasing efficiency and graphic impact in professional design presentations ASLA Book Examines Energy Efficient Design
Edited by E. Gregory McPherson Produced and Published by The Landscape Architecture Foundation and The American Society of Landscape Architects I ncorporating a decade of technical advances and experience in this developing science, eleven experts in landscape architecture, architecture and planning have recently released the findings of their research and practice in a remarkable volume entitled Energy Con- serving Site Design. Though most landscape architects are familiar with the basic strategies for energy-conscious site development, this new work provides a single source of information on the subject which until now has not been available. Energy Conserving Site Design is organized in four major sections which address the broad aspects of development benefits, site analysis, landscape design and community planning strategies for the future.
