John Stilgoe - Shallow-Water Dictionary
By John Stilgoe
48 pages, 6” x 8”, soft cover with flaps, printed in 1990.
Interiors are excellent, covers are a bit scuffed with age. Some foxing at edges of paper.
One of the two first trade paperbacks published by Exact Change, 1990. (See the 20th Anniversary Catalogue, on the About page, for more about Exact Change’s beginnings.) First edition of a text that John R. Stilgoe later republished with Princeton Architectural Press; an investigation into the physical limits of an estuary, and the linguistic limits to its description. With black-and-white photos by the author.
