Seeking timeless truths LORD PALUMBO Mies van der Rohe at Work by Peter Carter. Phaidon, 1999. 192pp. £19.95

One of the very few certainties in life is that the best books are out of print! When, as now with Peter Carter's Mies van der Rohe at Work, the situation is remedied by reprinting (with a fresh preface by the author and a foreword by Phyllis Lambert), it is a cause for celebration. Perhaps this exception to the rule may herald better times: the re-emergence of books of interest and distinction in architecture as well as other art forms.
