Whenever shelter magazines feature a splendid library or amply stacked coffee table, we immediately reach for our trusty magnifying glass and peruse the spines. A boon to our shelf snooping habit is newly formed Birch Books Conservation, which aims “to preserve the professional libraries of artists, architects, authors, and important public figures through publishing photographic and written research.” The New York-based non-profit organization’s debut title will explore the library amassed by architect Philip Johnson at his transparent hideaway in New Canaan, Connecticut. Slated for publication this fall with an introduction by Robert A.M. Stern, The Library of Philip Johnson: Selections from the Glass House will explore 100 volumes from Johnson’s study through photos and text by Birch Cooper and Jordan Hruska. Among the titles on Johnson’s shelves: Lettering in Architecture by Alan Bartram, an illustrated look at The Victorian Country House, Anatole Kopp‘s Constructivist Architecture in the USSR, and Rem Koolhaas‘s first book, Delirious New York. Pre-order your copy of The Library of Philip Johnson here and delight in knowing that proceeds from book sales will go toward preserving the books at Johnson’s Library Study building in New Canaan.
