Description

The first in-depth study of a community’s architecture along the eastern coast of Maine. Thaddeus Holownia took more than a thousand large-format photographs for this project, including interiors and exteriors of buildings, wider streetscape and landscape views, and a whole series of portraits of trees. The result is a magnificent book of photographs, accompanied by essays by architectural historian John Leroux and an introduction by Hugh French. This casebound, Smyth-sewn, large-format volume features 175 duotone stochastic reproductions.
