Published by the Commission of Fine Arts, Palace of State: The Eisenhower Executive Office Building is a celebration of the EEOB which has occupied a prominent site next to the White House for 150 years. Built to house three of the oldest and most important executive departments of the U.S. government—State, War, and Navy—the colossal granite has long been a venue where American history is made. Having lasted decades of plans threatening alteration or demolition, the building survives as one of the foremost examples of Second Empire design and serves as the home of the Executive Office of the President. Many of the photographs in the book were contributed by yours truly including the cover shown here.
