Last minute gift idea: Subscriptions to Places: Forum of Design for the Public Realm

Allen Press (Places publisher)

Dear Friend of Places:

Subscriptions to Places: Forum of Design for the Public Realm make great year-end gifts for friends, business associates, clients, and staff. As the new year unfolds, the journal will continue to bring them lively insights and information about how to care for and design places that enhance the public realm. Theme sections, portfolios, and independent submissions in our "Speaking of Places," "Research and Debate," "Dispatch," and "To Rally Discussion" sections are some of the ways our contributors present exemplary places and discuss their significance. The current issue includes a handsome presentation of winners of 2007 EDRA/Places awards. Upcoming issues will discuss "re-Placing," "Climate Change and Place," and the 2008 EDRA/Places awards winners. Mail this form to Places by January to receive all three issues in 2008. Your colleagues and friends will then be reminded of your kindness each time a new issue arrives. Please take advantage of this opportunity to spread the word about Places, along with your holiday good cheer. Please send your name, address, city, state, zip and email address as well as the same information for each gift recipient to: Places c/o Allen Press, Attn: Scott Starr, PO Box 1897, Lawrence, KS 66044. Make checks payable to Places ($50/subscription). Allen Press will notify gift recipients of your generous gift.

Places Partner schools and sponsors include the University of California Berkeley, Pratt Institute, MIT, Georgia Tech, the Universities of Miami, Michigan, Maryland, and Washington. Places is dedicated to fostering debate about environmental design from the discussion of buildings, landscapes and art projects as singular, visual objects to the consequences they have in the environments that surround our lives.
