We are creating a high-quality, hardcover coffee table book that beautifully portrays exceptional historic homes from four historic districts — Roosevelt, F.Q. Story, Encanto-Palmcroft and Willo. The book will document the unique architecture of the earliest Phoenix neighborhoods and educate those who may not realize the rich history of our city. The book will be sold at historic district events and will also be sold on Amazon in order to reach the widest audience.
We will select and photograph 5-6 homes in each neighborhood, including interior and exterior photography. Each home will represent exceptional examples of architecture from the district and will be of varied styles and periods. We will also be adding a few exterior images of other homes where interior photography is not possible.
This will not be an exhaustive survey of homes, but a detailed sampling of some of the best. The houses will be hand picked based on style, condition and their photogenic qualities. We have already started shooting houses and designing the book, and we anticipate a fall 2021 publication date.
We need your help to pay for printing, our ISBN number and copyrighted materials, such as historic images.
We also need houses! If you live in one of these historic districts and have an exceptional home, contact us!
