Alvan Small, Architect

This building is significant as the work of architect Alvan Small and as an example of a small commercial building executed in the Neoclassical style. The primary facade is of red brick with a side-gabled roof bracketed with a stepped parapet end wall. The ornament is restrained and features a center entrance with a monumentally scaled classical surround of concrete with a tall, arched, metal sash window to each side, and metal cornice with modillions. The Grimm Book Bindery operated in this building as a multi-generational family business, the only firm in Madison to exclusively bind books.
