Chicago skyscrapers–the movie…


..trailer, that is. University of Illinois Press has just released the promo video for Chicago Skyscrapers, 1871-1934, and it’s full of illustrations from the book and some stunning shots of the leading characters today (in addition to the talking head…): Very excited to have this out there to spread the word…Please share!

We’re scheduled to be on bookstore shelves in early June. Many thanks to Michael Roux at the Press and to Sam Ambler at Prairie Production Group for putting this together…

  1. Great promo. Tom Leslie writes and speaks clearly and entertainingly about early Chicago architecture. He provides new and significant information about this important period of architectural development heretofore not available. Having read early chapters of this book, I am eager to own and read it in its entirety.

  2. You made our refresher course fabulous in November. We are all delighted that we can dig deeper with your book and that others too will have the opportunity to learn and share your stimulating approach to Chicago’s great (maybe greatest) contribution to architecture. We’ve been patiently waiting for the release of the book!. Hurrah!


  3. Glad to hear, Nancy! I’m patiently waiting for the release, too, as you can imagine…And hoping to get back to the big city shortly thereafter…
