For residents and visitors, a Baedeker of more than 1,000 houses, office towers, theaters, libraries, and other buildings in the city celebrated as the birthplace of modern architecture. The guide is illustrative rather than encyclopedic, presenting a representative selection of buildings in addition to the city's essential landmarks. The neighborhoods chosen (31 of them, plus Chicago-O'Hare International Airport) display a range of types, styles, and eras. The work is more or less portable, though at 574 pages not exactly pocket-size. Nicely illustrated in b&w, with 35 maps. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
