Book Watch is a new periodic feature highlighting noteworthy upcoming and recent releases in architecture, design and photography. On occasion, this will include books not yet revealed to the general public and newly discovered older titles of note. A concerted effort is made to view books prior to their inclusion in Book Watch.
This series will supplement ArTect.net’s focus on editorials and unique stories, infusing new content with greater regularity.
Authors and publishers are welcome to submit publications for consideration in Book Watch via ArTect.net’s contact form.
