The Library of Congress : the art and architecture of the Thomas Jefferson Building( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguably the most beautifully decorated building in the United States, the Library of Congress building (now known as the Jefferson Building) reached its 100th anniversary in 1997 after an eighty million dollar restoration that returned it to its original state. At the turn of the century, Herbert Small, a newspaperman, wrote a guide to the building and its decoration. His text, edited by Henry Hope Reed, is reproduced here. It is preceded by introductory essays by historian and Librarian of Congress Emeritus Daniel J. Boorstin and noted writer Brendan Gill. The planning and construction of the building are detailed in John Y. Cole's essay, followed by an essay on the building as a work of art by Pierce Rice, and discussions of the decorations, paintings, and sculptures by Henry Hope Reed, Richard Murray, and Thomas P. Somma. The volume concludes with a photo essay on the restoration by Barbara Wolanin; a color "schema" of the building; a glossary of architectural and decorative terms; and a biographical dictionary of all the artists, architects, and designers who worked on the building. Throughout, noted photographer Anne Day's color images enhance this splendid book

The community of the book : a directory of selected organizations and programs by Carren Kaston( Book )

16 editions published between 1986 and 1993 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a selective listing of organizations that promote books and reading, administer literacy projects, and encourage the study of books. Expanding on a brief list of organizations in the 1984 Library of Congress report, Books in Our Future, it focuses on national programs of special interest to the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The emphasis is on organizations in the United States, where recently there has been renewed interest in educational reform, in literacy, and in the future of the book. Alphabetically arranged, the entries provide addresses, telephone numbers, and contact persons for the organizations; general descriptions of their purposes; examples of their activities; the names of their publications; and a description of how they are funded. This information is based largely on materials that were provided by the organizations and programs themselves. Shared areas of interest include reading skills (the problem of illiteracy) and reading motivation (the problem of aliteracy); the state of the book industry; books and technology; the potential complementarity of books and the media; censorship; the history of books; and the international role of the book. Publishers, booksellers, librarians, book researchers, scholars, teachers, and writers are among those represented in this directory by a selective listing of their professional associations. An introduction by John Y. Cole entitled "Is There a Community of the Book?" Opens the directory. (Thc)
