Line, Shade and Shadow wins the 2011 Historic Preservation Book Prize!

We are excited to announce that Line, Shade and Shadow: The Fabrication and Preservation of Architectural Drawings by Lois Olcott Price has won the 2011 Historic Preservation Book Prize awarded by The University of Mary Washington Center for Historic Preservation.

Exploring the materials and techniques used in the fabrication of architectural drawings while illustrating their evolution from the eighteenth through the twentieth century, Line, Shade and Shadow is detailed, descriptive, beautifully illustrated, and has been deemed the most significant contribution to the intellectual vitality of historic preservation in America.

As winner of this award, Ms. Price will receive $500 from the Center for Historic Preservation. We congratulate Ms. Price on this fine accomplishment!
