The Book of Errors by Annie Coggan is the tale of three architects who shaped and altered the stories of three historic American structures—the Henry Knox Museum in Maine, Fraunces Tavern in New York City, and the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia. The book takes its title from the preservation missteps and preconceptions of those involved, and through drawings, ephemera, and imaginings considers the narratives of history we create through architecture. A book of imagined architectures by Annie Coggan, with text by Mark Hage, The Book of Errors invites us to new possibilities that may or may not have happened, but that become stories of our mind, each in our unique way. With an introduction by Brigid Hughes.
Annie Coggans an artist, designer, and founder of Chairs and Buildings Studio. A professor in the School of Design at Pratt Institute and contributing editor to A Public Space, she lives in Brooklyn, New York, and Belfast, Maine.
