It's a working title.
Too long.

Yeah, working title. Probably doesn't work for the TLR crowd. Then again, it's a book and they don't read those anyway.

The whole book ought to be 140 characters or less, I suppose.

I guess the title doesn't leave much room for anything else then. Writer's block never was such a good thing!

I am not a planner but am interested in urban history & vernacular architecture.

Here's the book I'd write if i was to write one:

The Urban I-House
Everday Houses in the Urban Midwest
(Title and subtitie)

It would be a compare & contrast piece on 19th century houses and neighborhood retail in the urban midwest, and would make a case for a distinctive form of vernacular architecture that is found in the Midwest & Great Lakes areas. The book would be more the housing that happened before the national "styles" of 'Foursqaure' and 'Bungalow' became popular, hence the focus is on the 19th century.

The book would take four case study cities (probably Dayton, Indianapolis, and maybe Cleveland or Chicago...tho I'd want to stay away from Chicago), and look at how these houses are the same and differ from city to city. Indy and Dayton for the lower midwest and Cleveland or Milwaulkee for a "Great Lakes' midwest.

Not really a planning book but maybe of use to planners and historic preservationists.
