Modern in the Middle

Book Design
2019—2020

Bud Rodecker and I worked with architectural historians Susan Benjamin and Michelangelo Sabatino to design their book Modern in the Middle: Chicago Houses 1929–1975, published by Monacelli Press.

Modern in the Middle features modernist homes in the Chicagoland area. The bulk of the book consists of written descriptions of each house, illustrated with original and historical photography.
