MEDIA REVIEWS
""Chicago''s Famous Buildings" is the grandaddy of the city''s architectural guidebooks. Sought by architectural aficionados since its first edition in 1965, its latest incarnation is the fifth. Franz Schulze and Kevin Harrington, art and architectural historians, respectively, have edited the last two editions of this constantly evolving yet still essential volume. . . . Schulze and Harrington write engaging prose that weaves together many aspects essential to a building or neighborhood''s creation and interpretation. Their inclusive approach is appropriate for a city of Chicago''s enormous diversity."

--Edward Keegan "Chicago Tribune "
""Chicago''s Famous Buildings" has long been the standard guide to the city''s most distinguished buildings. . . . Schulze and Harrington are unusually brisk, even saucy, writers, and their descriptions are commendably concrete and vivid. This is an admirable reworking of a book that''s at once a classic and a work in progress."--Benjamin Schwartz, "Atlantic Monthly
