Squarish 8vo. Three uniform volumes in softcovers as issued. Richly illustrated with English text. A fine clean, unread set
First edition (s) in English. – “The buildings by Arne Jacobsen set out in their chronological sequence. Each volume has a short introduction and then an entry for each building that puts together, in one place, site plans, where appropriate, and a selection of historic drawings, modern floor plans and sections along with a short description/assessment. Designs that were not, in the end, built are also included. A selection of drawings are collected together here in the third volume but drawing-office technical drawings are not included. They show how confident and competent Jacobsen was as a draughtsman and include cartoons – with strong heavy and bold line work – sketches – or perhaps more the resolution of ideas for architectural details – sketches from travels abroad and subtle and delicate colour-wash drawings of scenery, historic buildings and plants.
