Help! I can't figure out how to cite this book!
« on: September 04, 2013, 02:48:59 pm »
The publisher information is confusing me on this book, so I can't figure out the right way to cite it.

Author: Franklin K. Toker
Title: Fallingwater Rising: Frank Lloyd Wright, E.J Kaufmann, and America's Most Extraordinary House
Publisher Info:
This is a Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf
Copyright 2003 by Franklin K. Toker

Any help with the correct citation would be really appreciated!

Published in the United Stated by Alfred A. Knopf, a division of Random House, Inc., New York, and simultaneously in Canada by Random House of Canada Liminted, Toronto. Distributed by Random House, Inc., New York.

Hi Steph, if you are using MLA then the basic format is:

author (last, first). title of the book (underline or italics). publication information (place of publication: publisher, year of publication).

Plug these elements into that basic format and you should have it!

Author: Franklin K. Toker
Title: Fallingwater Rising: Frank Lloyd Wright, E.J Kaufmann, and America's Most Extraordinary House
Publisher Info: Alfred A. Knopf (not sure in what city the book was published but see if you can determine that from the title page or the verso of the title page)
Year of publication: 2003

Hope this helps!
