Cincinnati panoramic Photographer, Tom Schiff, is well-known for his colorful, oblong books of panoramic photographs. Often, the subject of Schiff’s photographs are the visually interesting landmarks, buildings, and places in and around Cincinnati and Ohio. Schiff’s newest photo book project, Columbus, Indiana: Midwestern Modernist Mecca (Skira Rizzoli, 2013), takes the reader/viewer on a wonderful tour around the little town in Indiana that has some of the most extraordinary examples of modernist architecture you’ll ever lay eyes on. Schiff not only offers readers/viewers a glimpse inside of beautiful places, such as the Miller House by Eero Saarinen (1957), but his unique style and craft allows us to see things in a different way. Whether you are traveling for research or leisure, Schiff’s new book, available for check out at the DAAP Library, is a wonderful resource for preparing for your next architectural pilgrimage to Columbus (Indiana).

To my fellow ARLIS/OV members:
After 42 years of art librarianship, I plan to retire at the beginning of May from the Bridwell Art Library at the University of Louisville. Although not the most active chapter member, I have nonetheless enjoyed being with you all at every meeting I attended and every time we met up at the national meetings. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as an art librarian and am excited to see what the future holds.
The job ad will appear soon. If any of you are thinking about a change, do consider this position. It’s a wonderful opportunity to work with some enthusiastic and creative people.
All the best,
Gail R. Gilbert, Director
University of Louisville
