"On one level, it's a book about design, on another... photography. More important...it's about learning to see."
Lou Jacobs, Jr., Rangefinder Magazine, November 2003
"I have numerous black and white visually expository books and…Wilson’s first effort…stands well with the best."
Vernacular architecture amidst the California landscape is captured eloquently by David Stark Wilson’s appreciative and knowledgeable eye. Using a large format view camera, Wilson has elevated vernacular structures of pure utility and highlighted their consequence, meaning, and haunting beauty. Grain elevators, gold rush buildings, tank houses, greenhouses, covered bridges, barns, silos, stamp mills, Quonset huts, water flumes and other rural structures are presented in this daringly designed book.
