Classic Barns: American Rustic (American Rustic) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the tobacco fields of Connecticut to the grain fields of the Midwest, barns rise above rural landscapes like cathedrals of the countryside, signposts pointing toward America's agricultural heritage. American Rustic: Classic Barns examines the functional, aesthetic, and almost spiritual appeal of these beloved structures with more than one hundred stunning, full-color photographs.
-- Illuminating text offers a complete discussion of the barn architecture, including regional differences
-- Fascinating sidebars detail barn culture and lore, from barn dances to Amish communal barn raisings
-- Beautifully illustrated with more than one hundred photographs, paintings, and other illustrations

Synopsis:

Barns dot rural landscapes throughout America, symbols of the countrys agricultural heritage. Celebrate these beautiful, now rapidly vanishing buildings. Although a bit of the precious past is lost when one disappears, these striking photographs bring them back to life, often weathered and faded. Take a look at George Washingtons sixteen-sided barn, trace the influence of the Mennonites in a spacious barn surrounded by greenery, see the famous round barn of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and more. Each has its own special story to tell.
