Le Corbusier Le Grand

I've bought many books on Le Corbusier for the library here at GSA over the years, but the latest purchase from Phaidon Press, 'Le Corbusier Le Grand', is definitely the largest - and weighing in at 20 pounds, the heaviest. In addition to providing a spectacular visual biography, it features many previously unpublished images and documents and is backed up by an introductory essay by Jean-Louis Cohen and chapter introductions by Corb scholar Tim Benton. 'Le Corbusier Le Grand' can be consulted in the Mackintosh Library between 11 and 12 each day.
