Atlanta architect Stan Dixon is a classicist in an age when classicists are rarer than ever. But his debut book, Home: The Residential Architecture of D. Stanley Dixon, reveals the ways his oeuvre innovates far beyond that.

Dixon himself distills the venture into a humble effort: “To try to inspire others the way I’ve been inspired throughout my career.” Yet the Rizzoli tome, out September 12, is as triumphant as the veteran talent’s diverse portfolio, his iconic collaborators ranging from Suzanne Kasler to Beth Webb.

Rooted in the timeless tenets of harmony, proportion and human scale, these projects simultaneously delight with moments of whimsy—a ric-rac stair railing, an ogee window arch, an egg-and-dart molding, an unexpected quatrefoil, a Georgian pediment—drawing a line from precedent to permanence.
