Description: The counterpart to his best-selling Barn: The Art
of a Working Building and years in the making, 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 for 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.
