Price right

Wiley has also done an excellent job with the Samantha Hardingham and with essays by luminaries including Robin Middleton.It picks up where Price's last book, Works II , left off. (Incidentally, there was never a Works I, to save you the bother of looking. ) A series of projects with the usual Priceian wit and line drawings is beautifully presented.

Congratulations all round. The only fly in the ointment concerns Wiley's reprinting of Works II , originally published by the AA.

The AA's Mohsen Mostafavi was happy to allow a reprinting, but was insistent that the format should not be identical. Wiley agreed to this, but (no doubt inadvertently) ended up producing something looking remarkably similar. Mohsen has sent them a bill for several thousand pounds, which will apparently be used to create a Price bursary. Actually, a lunch would be a good idea
