    Publisher’s Note 

    I recently had the chance to sit on the other side of the table from Princeton

    Architectural Press, as author rather than publisher. I hesitate to call War Plan Red   a full-blown book: it’s a brief and lighthearted history of border tensions between the

    United States and Canada, and not the heavy tome following a lifetime’s research on an obscure corner of architectural theory. Working on this small book had many rewards,

    but one of the biggest was understanding why people like working with Princeton

    Architectural Press so much. I had the chance to see firsthand how a dedicated and

    conscientious editor can help shape and improve a text, and how a talented designer

    can make it, along with the artwork, look better than I dared imagine. Of course, it

    wasn’t all smooth sailing: I was asked to clarify sentences that seemed perfectly clear to

    me and sent back to hunt down sources and images I was sloppy in keeping track of.

    I also felt firsthand the tug-of-war some authors find disagreeable: how to “position”

    a book that falls between the cracks of bookstore categories—neither serious history

    nor humor, and I bristled at eff orts to push it too far in one direction or the other. What I brought away first from the entire experience is what a collaboration making

    a book is. Every person here—from editor and designer to production and sales,

    marketing, and publicity—adds their own “secret sauce” and improves the end product

    immeasurably.

    My second, and more powerful, discovery from this process is that the book is the

    ideal medium for this kind of collaborative creative process. We are several years now

    into the “death of the book” (decades, if you’re old enough to remember its first

    passing at the hands of the CD and, believe it or not, the floppy disk!), the end of the

    printed page in favor of e-readers and PDFs on phones, et al, but the book is alive and

    well and, judging from this past year—our most successful ever—going strong. I think this is not only because the book is so deeply embedded in our culture and history

    but also because it reveals the many telltale marks of its craft, from papermaker to

    bookseller, in a way that off ers pleasure on so many levels every time you pick a lovingly

    made book up at a store or off  your shelf, pleasures no e-reader will ever duplicate

    or mimic. A well-produced book is a small miracle, and in an age where these seem

    few and far between, I’m delighted to continue to participate in their making, whether

    as author or publisher, or simply as emcee to the many wonders you’ll find in this,

    our latest catalog.

    Finding Home Shelter Dogs and Their Stories

    Traer Scott 

    Bold, retiring, serious, sparkling, quirky, or lovable— 

    the dogs in Traer Scott’s remarkable photographs

    regard us with humor, dignity, and an abundance

    of feeling. Scott began photographing these dogs in

    2005 as a volunteer at animal shelters. Her first book,

    Shelter Dogs, was a runaway success, and in this follow-up, Scott introduces a new collection of canine

    subjects, each with indomitable character and spirit:

    Morrissey, a pit bull, who suff ered from anxiety-

    related behaviors brought on by shelter life until

    adopted by a family with four children; Chloe, a

    young chocolate Lab mix, surrendered to a shelter
