Institute of Classical Architecture & Art

Publications & Bookshop


Publications play a large role in the mission of the ICAA and are overseen by the Books Committee, an active volunteer group made up of ICAA board members, staff, Fellows, and members of the Council of Advisors. The committee, currently chaired by architect and avid reader, Brian Connolly, regularly reviews re-printing possibilities for texts that are no longer available, as well as proposals for new books to be included in the “Classical America Series in Art and Architecture.” This important series is a legacy from Classical America, which the ICAA now vigorously maintains today. The budget each year includes grant subsidies for either authors or publishers selected to be part of the series.

To support the series, The Classicist BookShop allows readers to review new releases, the full roster of titles in the series, and a recommended reading list. To facilitate awareness and ordering these indispensable titles, the ICAA partners with The link from The Classicist BookShop allows for a portion of proceeds from all sales made on-line to benefit the Institute.

Members of the ICAA community are also eligible to receive special discounts on books about architecture, art, design, and photography through our collaboration with the Designers & Books Online Book Fair.
