Porches - American Beauties Gift Book
This lovely book combines beautifully artistic color photographs with brief excerpts from the pens of famous American writers. A stately veranda of a Southern country home is captioned with a description of Deep South gentility from a William Faulkner novel. A rural New England porch showing a tricycle and baby carriage comes with an excerpt from Bret Harte's A Newport Romance. These are just two of the many American scenes that grace this beautiful book. The more than 50 atmospheric photos are serene yet powerful statements of Americana beautifully complemented with poetic quotations that serve as their captions. This is a wonderful little volume for gift-giving or for treasuring in one's personal library.
