New. Gibbs Smith, Publisher, Salt Lake City, UT, 2007. Paperback.

Edited by Susan Dinkelspiel Cerny.

Both a guidebook and reference to the historic and architectural resources of the San Francisco Bay Area, it is intended for residents, visitors, historians, preservationists, and students. A must for anyone interested in the built environment. This is the latest of a series of architectural guidebooks on the Bay Area.

This compendium has been written and photographed by Susan Cerny and twelve Bay Area experts, including Archives & Architecture historian Charlene Duval, and provides a historic record of how the area developed to became what it is today, and discusses transportation systems, city and suburban landscape plans, public parkland, California history, and economic, social, and political influences. Included are Victorians, civic buildings, churches, parks, grand Period Revivals, and rustic Arts and Crafts homes, as well as significant vernacular buildings in less publicized neighborhoods and towns.

This guidebook includes more than 2,000 entries and 150 maps. Represented are many of the major architects of the area from the 1860s to the present as well as architectural landmarks in San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties.
