They All Fall Down: Richard Nickel's Struggle to Save America's Architecture
This compelling biography covers Nickel's youth on Chicago's West Side, his army service in the mid-1940s, his studies at the Institute of Design, and his attempts to save buildings and salvage works of art until his death in 1972 while salvaging material from Sullivan's Stock Exchange Building. More than a biography, this book chronicles the early days of the historic preservation movement, interweaving portraits of other important figures such as Mayor Richard J. Daley, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and Aaron Siskind. Featured are more than 70 duotone photographs in a special "portfolio" section, printed on archival paper, taken by Nickel throughout his crusade to save Chicago's buildings. 261 pages
