Finding Books in a Series

Finding books published as part of a series can be difficult. A series is different from a journal or serial.  Generally each book within the series has its own theme and title. For instance, the series Clog, includes books with such titles as Rendering, National Mall, Prisons, etc. The easiest way to find books published within a series (especially when you don't know the title of the book) is to use the Advanced Search option. Enter the series name and use the pull down arrow to select Series as your search index.  Two popular series titles with architectural themes are Clog and Pamphlet Architecture.
