Not only is Building Details important in showing how architects learned and drew from the designs of the great masters; it is a rare and beautiful documentation of how these important early-twentieth-century architects realized their designs. Snyder's 120 plates clarify details that continue to confront architects today and allow us to see thoroughly how the buildings we admire were put together. Building Details is a trove of knowledge that goes beyond conventional printed sources and continues to be an important resource for architects working today.

Also included is a DVD-ROM that contains printable TIFF files of all the plates in the original edition of Building Details, at their original size of sixteen by twenty-one inches.
