Fodor's Review

Architect William Stout began selling books out of his apartment 25 years ago. Today the store is a source for Bay Area professionals looking for serious-minded tomes on architecture and design. Head down into the crumbling whitewashed basement for beautifully illustrated coffee-table books. Stout is the sole distributor of the popular IDEO method cards, which offer and inspire design solutions.
