Now back in print: Paul Rudolph: The Florida Housescatalogs the best of Rudolph’s early
residential work. Along with Rudolph’s personal essays and renderings, the book
features duotone photographs by Ezra Stoller and Joseph Molitor and conveys the
lightness, timelessness, strength, materiality, and transcendency of Rudolph’s work,
available again with a new foreword from the authors.
While we don’t have any rooms filled with card catalogs anymore, we do still have a few lingering around the library. These are kept for various organizational reasons, but also because they look awesome.
The woman in the first photograph is looking for a book in April of 1970, and Lindsay, one of our librarians (and part time Tumblr model), is using a card catalog located on the 5th floor of the library. Since that one card catalog could hardly house all of our materials, she also decided to look for her book in the electronic card catalog, using one of the stations located on the first floor of the library.
