The Architecture of Stanley D. Anderson, with James Ticknor and William Bergmann, a new book by Paul Bergmann, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Stanley D. Anderson's standard of architecture has sustained the test of time. His designs for residences, commercial buildings, schools, and Gentlemen's Farms are still praised today for his attention to detail, solid design work, and high-quality standards.

Through his signature Country Georgian style, Anderson and his associates transformed Lake Forest.

Designed for local history buffs, amateur and professional architects, and the simply curious, this book provides biographies and interior perspectives on the production of Anderson and his associates, William Bergmann and James Ticknor, and their distinctive interpretation of a transformative architectural style.
