Since it opened as a museum a year ago, Philip Johnson‘s famous 1949 Glass House in New Canaan, CT has been flooded by both seekers after architectural wisdom and design junkies in general—so much so in fact, that all tours for the rest of 2008 are already sold out.

Don’t worry though; Assouline has come to the rescue with a great new book on the modernist mecca: *The Glass House*. Folk like Frank Lloyd Wright laughed when it was built, but we’d stake the Glass House up against Fallingwater any day.
