Editorial Reviews

California Bookwatch
“[O]utstanding…highly recommended . . . . Professionals and students alike will appreciate the illustrated glossary of technical terms, and the wealth of illustration packs four to six good-sized photos on almost every page.”
Douglas Klosterman - Clem Labine's Period Homes
“The Surfaces series has proved to be useful to a wide range of artists including set designers and trompe l'oeil artists, architects and graphic designers. . . [and] also attracted an audience of graphics professionals who work primarily in computer applications such as CAD and Photoshop, as well as artists and designers who create computer environments, including animators and video game designers. . . . In addition to providing the excellent images for reference, and the additional resources, Juracek's Architectural Surfaces implicitly reminds artists, architects and designers to observe surfaces, study buildings' elements and look closely at the resolution of details.”
Sally Friedman - Theatre Design & Technology: USITT Magazine
“Not only…a fantastic research source, it's a beautiful photography book and a fascinating travelogue…[D]ifficult to imagine a more enjoyable reference…”
