A delicious concurrence of the photographer's and the architect's eyes is played out in this 192-page work, with nearly as many photographs of Botta building his Bank (or thinking about building) as of the Bank being built. Text in German, but no matter. Most photographs in black and white, but some color for punch. Laid in are Vera Isler's business card, a foldout brochure from the Bank, and a price list for books, postcards, even a t-shirt promoting the project and the architect. Fine hardcover binding in near-Fine dust jacket with faint rippling to top front edge.
