Get Big, Fancy Architecture Books on Sale at William Stout

This weather! Aside from battening down the hatches, there's little it makes you want to do but cozy up indoors with a good book and a cup of tea. If you're minus a quality tome at the moment, pop out during a lull in the storm today and race over to William Stout. The Jackson Square bookstore (which recently opened a second location at 678 Mission St) specializes in archtectural reads, and has a crazy-extensive collection on the subject (and beyond). From now through Saturday they're having a 30% off sale on all overstock titles published before 2000.

Need a Coffee Table Book Fix? William Stout Books Opens in SOMA

These books offer a wealth of information, and yeah, we really like the pretty pictures too.
