Le Corbusiers buildings have long been part of the inalienable canon of 20th century architecture. But le Corbusiers work as a book designer and author is scarcely known, and has hitherto not been acknowledged - Le Corbusier meticulously planned and realized over 40 books in his lifetime. Architect of Books shows that Le Corbuiser accorded great importance to books as an essential part of his output. Using unpublished archive material, Catherine de Smet traces the process by which these books emerged and makes it possible to discover the great construction architect as a book artist.
