    The North Carolina SHPO office is pleased to announce the publication in January of architectural historian Laura AW Phillip's Grand Illusions:  Historic Decorative Interior Painting in North Carolina. 

    "With Grand Illusions, Laura Phillips brings to readers her findings after decades of study of decorative interior painting. The chief focus is on the walls of North Carolina residences in the nineteenth century with nods to examples in nonresidential and out-of-state structures. Types studied include wood-grained painting; marbled, stone-blocked, and smoked painting; stenciled painting; and trompe-l’oeil and scenic paintings. The volume includes an extended essay on the topic accompanied by a photographic catalog of the properties and examples."--UNC Press website

    Carla Yanni, Professor, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, is pleased to announce the publication of Living on Campus: An Architectural History of the American Dormitory (University of Minnesota Press, 2019). 

    "This richly illustrated book examines the architecture of dormitories in the United States from the eighteenth century to 1968, highlighting the opinions of architects, professors, deans, and students. Carla Yanni focuses on the dormitory as a place of exclusion as much as a site of fellowship, and considers the uncertain future of residence halls in the age of distance learning."--University of Minnesota Press website
