Following architect Steve Schaecher's Outhouses By Famous Architects and Mobile Homes By Famous Architects, we present his new array of fantastic structures.

In deft ink-and-watercolour illustrations and knowledgeable prose, Schaecher informs his twenty-nine booths with the sensibilities of the architects who supposedly designed them. Schaecher's books are not mere parodies. He envisions humorous applications for the talents of Palladio, Le Corbusier, Wright, and other giants; his watercolours are true reflections of the architects' styles. for example, Erik Gunnar Asplund's phone booth, the Stockholm Dialibrary, clearly exemplifies Asplund's design precepts, and the concise text explores the Swede's architectural principles - as well as the assertion that music by the Swedish 1970s super-group Abba is piped into the dialibrary to ease the pain of being on hold.

Schaecher brings a generous sense of humour to analyses of building styles from classical Egypt through Renaissance mastery, Enlightenment engineering, and Modern uplift before arriving among the competing theories of today. His past performance has won accolades from the likes of Robert Venturi, and "Phone Booths keeps up the good work.
