    CHOOSING A COZY HOME OVER A BIG HOUSE

    It's time for a different kind of house. A house that is more than square footage, where each room is in use every day. A house that expresses our values and our lifestyles.

    A PALLADIO FIRST EDITION FOR THE REST OF US

    One of the best-known architects of the Western world, Andrea Palladio, designed many sumptuous buildings in and around Venice during the Italian Renaissance.

Thomas Jefferson referred to his English translation as "the Bible." High-quality photographs of a first edition of the book are now available on CD-ROM from Octavo, with commentary by Robert Tavernor, a professor of architecture at the University of Bath.
