Banks have long been important symbols of wealth and prestige. In addition, their architecture has often reflected the various dominant architectural themes of their times and have often been the basis for important architectural work by major architects such as Louis Sullivan and I.M. Pei. This beautifully photographed book sponsored by the world-renowned Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Parnassus Foundation of New Jersey, will take the reader through an historical survey of significant banks in North America, from colonial times to the present.
