Help preserve part of America's cultural heritage by supporting our project or purchasing a copy of our book.  

THE PROJECT 

The Library of Philip Johnson: Selections from the Glass House is a complete inventory of Philip Johnson's library at the Glass House.  In addition to the complete inventory, 100 selections have been photographed and researched.  These 100 books have images of their cover and interior shots as well as complementary text by Birch Cooper and Jordan Hruska. All proceeds from the book go to conserving Philip Johnson's library at the Glass House. 

More information and images can be found online at birchbooksconservation.org or by following the link below:

THE BUDGET 

  • At this time we are raising funds to underwrite the printing of this project.  
  • Funds raised through kickstarter will go to the printing of The Library of Philip Johnson: Selections from the Glass House, the more money we raise the more copies we can print.
  • It would be great to go beyond our goal of $9,500
