Design students of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are featured in Harold Linton's Portfolio Design.

According to the publisher's website, Portfolio Design "has been the standard reference for students and young professionals in architecture, urban planning, landscape, and interior design who want to make the best impression possible in their applications for undergraduate and graduate school admissions, design grants, competitions, or in a job interview."

Said Diane Fox, lecturer of the UT College of Architecture and Design, who has taught the college's presentation design class for many years: "Harold Linton's Portfolio Design has been the standard reference for students and professionals in architecture, urban planning, landscape, and interior design for over a decade."

"Now, with the fourth edition, the book will be out at the end of April and includes several portfolios from the College of Architecture and Design's Presentation Design class."

Some pages of the book are available fore viewing, see here. Of particular note is UT School of Architecture student Micheal Clapp, who's portfolio is featured at the end of this sampling.
