Architectural students have for generations learned the essence of building design through the pages of "Graphic Standards": the drawings, charts, detailed illustrations, originally developed by architects George Ramsey and Harold Sleeper, that represent building components and systems, including everything from door frames to roof designs, to air ducts to outdoor sports facilities. Beginning ten years ago, Wiley began offering a student edition of the primary book, Architectural Graphic Standards, which was created as an abridgment of the prior edition of that book. This new student edition will be an abridgment of the present 9th edition, offering all the essential features of that very successful edition in an easily accessible and affordable format. Also, new to this student edition will be a greater offering of "Design guidelines," giving the student and instructor alike greater opportunity to use this publication as a teaching tool.
