Since 1932, the ten editions of Architectural Graphic Standards have been referred to as the "architect's bible." From site excavation to structures to roofs, this book is the first place to look when an architect is confronted with a question about building design. With more than 8,000 architectural illustrations, including both reference drawings and constructible architectural details, this book provides an easily accessible graphic reference for highly visual professionals.
To celebrate seventy-five years as the cornerstone of an industry, this commemorative Eleventh Edition is the most thorough and significant revision of Architectural Graphic Standards in a generation. Substantially revised to be even more relevant to today's design professionals, it features:
An entirely new, innovative look and design created by Bruce Mau Design that includes a modern page layout, bold second color, and new typeface
Better organized-- a completely new organization structure applies the UniFormat(r) classification system which organizes content by function rather than product or material
Expanded and updated coverage of inclusive, universal, and accessible design strategies
Environmentally-sensitive and sustainable design is presented and woven throughout including green materials, LEEDS standards, and recyclability
A bold, contemporary new package--as impressive closed as it is open, the Eleventh Edition features a beveled metal plate set in a sleek, black cloth cover

"Any discipline is lucky to have its bible, a book so embracing and lucid it helps to define and guide a profession or industry for generations. In houses and buildings, the bible is Architectural Graphic Standards...this venerable reference will continue to be not only relevant but remarkably prescient for many buildings to come." (Old-House Journal, Sept/Oct 2007)
"Architectural Graphic Standards 11th edition continues a 75-year tradition of offering concise text and descriptive graphics in a basic design handbook for architects." (Fabric Architecture; Sep/Oct 2007)
"The practice of Architectural Design is continually changing and this book gives examples of what is considered good practice at this time. I recommend this to everyone doing architectural design; this book is a tool, not a pretty book to leave on the table for visitors to see." (Orange Bytes, (North Orange County Computer Club), August 2007)
"Architectural Graphic Standards--more a professional handbook than a guide to graphic conventions--represents the most ambitious revision and overhaul in the publication's history." (Library Journal; 8/1/07)
"This year sees the publication of a new, improved Architectural Graphic Standards. Since Ramsey and Sleeper's last edition in 1956, the book has grown with rapidly evolving technologies, and the sporadic publishing pace of its early years has kept pace with the changes. The profession is evolving at an ever-greater pace, but Architectural Graphic Standards is keeping up its role as the franchise player." (Architect Magazine, June 2007)
