Abstract:

David Larkin's latest visual documentary book is a tour of the intriguing architecture of mills from their medieval beginnings to present day uses. Windmills, watermills, gristmills, sawmills and other kinds of naturally powered buildings from throughout the United States and Europe are revealed in unique, stunning photographs and drawings. Here, you'll discover mills still in full use, historically restored mills, as well as mills that have been converted into splendidly charming contemporary living spaces. In one chapter, stories documenting the complete restoration of gristmills are captured in picture-by-picture sequences. Also documented is the transformation of a towering early nineteenth-century English windmill into a beautifully appointed home-an outstanding representation of the possibilities these structures offer of today's lifestyle. The highly engaging history and profound beauty of these handcrafted structures - all presented in print for the first time - will attract anyone interested in history, architecture, and historic preservation.
