Sad time for publishing
I have only just caught up with the fact that highly respected architectural publisher Birkhauser has gone into administration. Like all aspects of book publishing, architectural book publishing is going through difficult times, but Birkhauser had a great reputation, with seriously considered books.
Architecture and reading my be considered as polar opposites by some – the prevalence of dyslexia is not only a fact, but in some cases a source of pride – but knowledge and ideas are important. Let’s hope for a Phoenix-like reappearance.
