Wood Burners, Mihalyo, Daniel. Foreword by Stephen Holl
13 Mihalyo, Daniel. Foreword by Stephen Holl Wood Burners
Princeton Architectural Press 1997 156898104X / 9781568981048 First Paperback Very Good Square Octavo 
119 pp. Faint scuffing to illustrated covers. Spine lightly sunned. Internally as new. Black-and-white photos and diagrams throughout. "Once standard fixtures at sawmills throughout the Pacific Northwest, wood burners were used to incinerate the vast amount of scrap, sawdust, and wood waste generated in the milling process. By the late 1960s, however, the development of the secondary wood products intustry, coupled with highly restrictive environmental legislation, rendered the wood burner obsolete. Deprived of their function, these structures are rapidly disappearing from the American landscape. Often ten or more stories tall, these steel vessels have a unique presence, ominously imposing from the outside yet mysteriously poetic when seen from their hollow interiors. Through essays, drawings, maps, and nearly 100 photographs -- including 65 duotone plates -- Wood Burners examines the history of this little-known typology of industrial architecture.

15 Rotman, Brian. With a Foreword by Timothy Lenoir Becoming Beside Ourselves: The Alphabet, Ghosts, and Distributed Human Being
Durham and London Duke University Press 2008 0822342006 / 9780822342007 First Paperback Near Fine Octavo 
176 pp. Short crease to front cover. Lower corners of last 30 or so pages have been bumped, producing shallow creases in the page margins. All else as new. "Rotman's analysis is unique in placing special emphasis on gesture and revealing its traces in orality and print. In a brilliant synthesis, he mixes evolutionary theory with a Deleuzian view of agent-as-assemblage, arguing that computational media both reveal and perform distributed cognition as a crucial aspect of human being-in-the-world. Essential reading for anyone interested in the interrelations between computational media, contemporary subjectivity, and human evolution."
