Containing over 1200 photographs and detailed line drawings from which one can design and build directly, Patterns from the Golden Age of Rustic Design is a valuable reference for preservationists, historians, designers, and homeowners. Albert Good provided plans for the construction of cabins, lodges, hotels, fireplaces, boat houses, furniture, fixtures, and more. Initially developed as a teaching tool for designers in the 1930s, this book is for anyone who has a desire to duplicate the classic, rustic structures commonly found in state and national parks. The designs extend to the use of stone in New England and the proliferation of the pueblo and mission styles in the southwest, as well as structures made of logs and mortar. In this informative treasure of a design book, you will find that the author reached his principal goal to present structures that "appear to belong and be a part of their settings.
