Yesterday, one of Marquette's local book stores (the wonderful Snowbound Books) was having an art book sale as a fundraiser for Art and Design students. They had a great selection (from Pablo Picasso to Frank Lloyd Wright) with low prices, and it was refreshing to see fellow art students swarming the display tables. Feeling like it was about time to buy myself a gift, I purchased William L. Price: Arts and Crafts to Modern Design by George E. Thomas and 20th Century American Architecture, A Traveler's Guide to 220 Key Buildings by Sydney LeBlanc.
And now, for today's post: a smattering of various decorative elements on columns and pillars.
