Mill : the history and future of naturally powered buildings by David Larkin( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 218 libraries worldwide
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

Shaker built : the form and function of Shaker architecture by Paul Rocheleau( Book )
11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
"Paul Rocheleau has photographed Shaker places and things for more than twenty years. He brings his special sensitivity to Shaker Built, the first book on Shaker architecture in many years and the only book on the subject in full color. Together with writer and Shaker authority June Sprigg, Rocheleau has explored what remains of the Shakers' quietly magnificent "cities of peace, love, and union" to present a visually stunning portrait of Shaker meeting houses, dwellings, workshops, and barns. Sprigg's lyrical essays and informative captions combine with David Larkin's masterful design to produce a photographic book as elegantly simple as Shaker buildings themselves."--Jacket

This book honors the art of the author & lets readers relive the life & times of the most beloved - & the most widely syndicated - comic strip in history, from its infancy in 1950 right through glorious middle age. Watch as your favorite characters grow into their most popular incarnations - Charlie Brown as tenacious baseball manager; Lucy as psychiatrist; Snoopy as Flying Ace; Linus as acolyte of the Great Pumpkin. One hundred ninety-two pages of two-color strips & 64 pages of four-color Sunday strips (more than 1,000 strips in all) & photographs are rounded out by Schulz's own comments (offering rare insight into the mind behind the mayhem). Annotation. Will Charlie Brown ever get to kick the footballs? Will Schroeder finally return Lucy's love? Will Linus give up his security blanket? Will Peppermint Party ever pass a test? And, most importantly will Snoopy--that canine literary ace--ever be published? "To take a blank piece of paper and draw characters that people love and worry about is extremely satisfying. It really does not matter what you are called or where your work is placed as long as it brings some kind of joy to some person some place."--Charles Schulz

It is not only technique however, that makes a Dulac. He can teach us much about pictorial construction, drawing and observation, for even in his stylizations these qualities come through"--Cover
