INTRODUCING THE NEW “PRESERVATIONIST’S BOOKSTORE!”
Just in time for the holiday season, you can now do your book shopping while also supporting the Preservation Alliance! We are pleased to announce a partnership with Bookshop.org, where you can browse our customized list of titles, place your order and specify delivery anywhere in the continental United States! Best of all, a portion of every sale benefits the Preservation Alliance, and a local independent bookstore. Everybody wins! We’ve developed an extensive list of titles on topics related to local history, architecture, social and cultural history, and preservation theory. Click below to review some fun ideas for the architect or preservationist in your life – maybe even you!
If you prefer to browse books in person, we recommend Joseph Fox Books. Their store is at 1724 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
