Architect Steve Schaecher presents his deft ink-and-watercolor illustrations and knowledgeable prose to imagine phone booths as they might have been constructed by various iconic architects. Schaecher's book is not a mere parody. While he envisions humorous applications for the talents of Palladio, Le Corbusier, Wright, and other giants, his watercolors are true reflections of the architects’ styles. He brings a generous sense of humor to analyses of building styles from classical Egypt through Renaissance mastery, Enlightenment engineering, and Modern uplift before arriving among the competing theories of today.
