Description

A far-reaching visual survey of farm buildings across the United States, tracing their historical and regional influences.

The first in the Norton/Library of Congress Visual Sourcebooks series, 'Barns' presents a broad, fresh, and newly informed visual analysis of one of America's fundamental building types. In a nation founded on agrarian principles, with a cultural and physical landscape as vast as it is diverse, the barn has long been recognised as an American icon. Drawn from the vast holdings of the Library of Congress, nearly 1,000 illustrations provide a tour of barns across the United States, from New England to the Great Lakes, the South, the Midwest, and the Far West.

'Barns' traces geographical and chronological continuities of type, design, and construction, and the Dutch, German, French, and Spanish influence. Captions identify each document and building, and all images are included on a CD-ROM (runs on both Windows and Macintosh platforms, requires Internet access) linked to the Library's high-resolution files. 'Barns' is the first comprehensive visual resource of its kind, an invaluable tool for architects, historians, students-and anyone who loves barns. 1,000 illustrations.
