This book has a lot of interesting facts about architecture but it lacks some of the juicier information I was looking for, like lore of haunted places and buildings on campus.
Fog
This is an easy-to-read guide to the Penn campus. Smart discussion of architecture and history. Organized geographically, but separate sections of the campus. Because there is so much to cover on the campus, many of the pictures are small.
Alien
Terrible book-just a wiki level overview of the school. This is certainly not an insider's look! Clearly written by people who have never even been to the campus, let alone attended the school.
