Faced with the loss of a truly beautiful and rare historical landmark, local activists joined together in the early 1970s to establish the Embassy Theatre Foundation, which purchased the theatre and faithfully restored it as a performing arts center and venue for Broadway shows. Much to the delight of patrons, "Miss Page" continues to be played at concerts, silent movies, and the theatre's Festival of Trees. Generously illustrated with color photos of the theatre and attached Indiana Hotel, this book is sure to appeal to theatre and music lovers, architectural and urban preservationists as well as regional historians.

Shaker buildings have long been admired for their simplicity of design and sturdy craftsmanship, with form always following function. Over the years, their distinctive physical characteristics have invited as much study as imitation. Their clean, unadorned lines have been said to reflect core Shaker beliefs such as honesty, integrity, purity, and perfection. In this book, Henry Plummer focuses on the use of natural light in Shaker architecture, noting that Shaker builders manipulated light not only for practical reasons of illumination but also to sculpt a deliberately spiritual, visual presence within their space. Stillness and Light celebrates this subtly beautiful aspect of Shaker innovation and construction, captured in more than 100 stunning photographs.
