Entourage Books

Yesterday someone asked me where the 'entourage books' were. I had never heard the word 'entourage' in the context of architecture books. When I did a keyword search in our catalog I discovered that this refered to books on architectural rendering. gives this definition:

3. Architecture. the landscaping and other nearby environmental features shown on a rendering of a building.

The Alaska Yukon Pacific Exhibition

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exhibition, which opened in June 1909. The Architecture Library has some periodicals from the time period with articles about the exhibition.

I especially enjoyed 'The Western Architect' from 1909.
