September 2018 - Between the Pages: Albuquerque: A City of Towers
This is book review of New Mexico books written by members of the New Mexico Book Co-op. New Mexico books are worth taking a look at in stores, libraries, or online.
For people who have just come to Albuquerque or old times like me, you will learn about Albuquerque’ history and architecture. Each “tower” has a full page write up on the history of the site. The “towers” are drawings by Michael Perlin and he also researched the history of each place. The “towers” include: Bell Trading Post, Bart Prince Residence, Immaculate Conception Church, Monte Vista Fire Station, Scholes Hall at UNM, The Compass Building, San Felipe Neri Church, The Sunshine Building, and many more. Some of the buildings were built in the 1790s. There are over fifty sites included. This book is a project of love and commitment by the author. This book would make a great gift for history buffs, tourists, students, and natives. And you know books make the best gifts!
