Selected Titles for April 2020
Welcome to our April newsletter, which is our attempt at stability and continuity in this "New World Order."

At the risk of sounding self-serving, I relay one architect's response: "Getting your book list is a monthly bright spot in my email inbox!"
Recent development in the Schuyler clan: older daughter Stephanie just turned 30! One of my favorite shots is of her with me and her Gramma Bea (Schuyler) of Bainbridge Island, WA (RIP) from yesteryear. She and husband C.J. visited our friend and fellow preservationist Bob Zoni, pictured here, pre-social distancing(!), at a job site in front of a house museum in Hamden, CT. Bob and I were on the board of Preservation Trades Network together years ago, and he is doing structural work (epoxy and all) to this post and beam museum.

And on that note, for those of us who are hunkered down and have a little extra time for browsing, I hope you enjoy this current - remotely produced - effort! And stay safe out there ...
Happy browsing! Steven
