American Landmarks: The Barn

Over 110 full-color illustrations. Those who love barns regard them as works of art, perfect harmonies of form and function. But these structures also stand as landmarks of American history and emblems of a country that values hard work, individualism, and community spirit. This volume explores the history, architectural evolution, varying styles, and craftsmanship of these rural landmarks. Organized by region, this visual survey offers a wealth of design variations that are adapted to the special needs of specific localities. Architectural details such as fretwork designs, hex signs, cupolas, weathervanes, and decorative hardware are also noted in this splendidly illustrated volume that combines modern photography with fine art reproductions, historical prints, and folk art images. Here is a captivating portfolio that captures the soul of the American heartland
