222 Further reading This is a bibliography of works used in the preparation of this book. Clearly it has a British orientation. Many other countries have equally useful publications and web-based resources, and this bibliography mentions some of the wealth from the USA and other countries. A useful introduction to the German literature can be found in Astrid Zimmerman's Constructing Landscape (2009), which is also a very useful follow-on to this book's introduction to the subject. This book was inspired by Elisabeth Beazley's now out-of-print Design and Detail of the Space between Buildings (1960), re-published in 1990 as a new edition by A. and A. Pinder. Other books to recommend as progressions from our introductory volume include Everett's Materials in the Mitchell's Building Series. Berge's excellent The Ecology of Building Materials covers the sustainable aspects of construction and is written from a Scandinavian experience. Recommended US literature includes Ching's Building Construction Illustrated, Landphair and Klatt's Landscape Architecture Construction, Hopper's Landscape Architectural Graphic Standards, and Harris and Dines's Time-Saver Guides for Landscape Architecture. Some publications are listed because they record historic or vernacular approaches to construction, such as Dobson's A Rudimentary Treatise on Foundation and Concrete Works (1850), the Road Research Laboratory's Bituminous Materials (1962), and Williams-Ellis's Buildings in Cob, Pisé and Stabilized Earth of 1947 (originally published in the 1920s).
