Published in conjunction with the exhibition Ralph Walker: Architect of the Century, Walker Tower, New York City, 2012.  Walker (1889-1973) was one of the pioneers of "modernistic" architecture in New York City during the 1920s, known for buildings such as the Barclay-Vesey Telephone Building.  His work captured the prosperity, energy, optimism, and luxury of the Jazz Age. (Intro.)  

A limited edition on 2500 copies, set in Garamond type, printed on Strathmore Pastelle paper by Oddi Printing, Reykjavik, Iceland.  The colophon notes that the book's design replicates as closely as possible Ralph Walker's own book design sensibility (Richard Pandiscio, Creative Director).
