The Architectural Detail is author Edward R. Ford's life's work, and this may be his most important book to date. Ford walks the reader through five widely accepted (and wildly different) definitions of detail, in an attempt to find, once and for all, the quintessential definition of detail in architecture.

Edward R. Ford is the author of numerous books on architecture. He is a practicing architect in Charlottesville, Virginia, and associate professor at the University of Virginia School of Architecture.
