Book summary

Halfway between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, on axis with the Washington Monument, the stone walls of the stunning new FDR Memorial rise behind the cherry trees. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, written by the world-renowned architect who designed the structure, is the only book to tell the complete story of this remarkable memorial, twenty years in the making. At once a unique visual biography of FDR and a guided walk-through of the memorial, this exclusive illustrated history -- complete with archival photographs, original drawings, sketches, landscape plans, and more -- gives an insider's view of a new national treasure. A tribute to FDR and his era, this volume will be an inspiration to architects and designers, a must have for all interested in FDR, and the perfect visitor's memento. [via]
