In spring 2017, Carolyn Yerkes published her first book, Drawing after Architecture: Renaissance Architectural Drawings and Their Reception (Marsilio, 2017). It was the winner of the James Ackerman Award in the History of Architecture by the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio in Vicenza, Italy, and released as the eighth volume in that prize series. The book examines the nature of architectural evidence to understand how Renaissance architects used images to explore structures, create biographies, and write history.
Carolyn's book is a finalist for the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award from the College Art Association.
