Some of the best architectural publications today are hybrid book-journals sometimes called 'bookazines', the most well-known being the Spanish Journal EL Croquis. So it's no surprise that the richest and most rewarding of the Scandinavian volumes on my desk are such hybrids, namely two of the Global Danish Architecture series, edited by Marianne Ibler. The first volume #1 , has a wide variety of building types by an equally wide range of offices, large and small, while the second #2, focuses entirely on housing created by Danish Firms.
