Historic Maine Homes 13 Nov. 2010
By David Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Historic Maine Homes is a concise text written by a knowledgeable historian on equal footing with photographs by a master of his craft, rather just another coffee table book with stunning photographs and accompanying explanatory text. The format size lends itself to use.

My eyes were opened to a world long familiar to me; after reading Historic Maine Homes I find myself looking again and falling in love with buildings that I had been driving by with an occasional glance.

As a catalog of maine architecture it is superb. But, Maine aside, this book stands as a clear primer on the styles of New England buildings.
Architect's Review 4 Jan. 2014
By Steve in St. Louis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I grew up a couple miles from this home and eventually became an architect with the largest architectural firm in the world. I haven't forgotten my roots. Having seen many of the world's architectural wonders, this home is the most delicate representation I've seen of the Federal Period. The staircase is a marvel. It's lightness is delicacy is unsurpassed.

Stephen Fichet (Fickett), Architect ret. from GA, VA & MO.
Absolutely beautiful, especially the photography 28 Dec. 2014
By Anne Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Absolutely beautiful, especially the photography. My only complaint is the almost complete lack of representation of areas outside of the coast.
