  • I ve been reading about barns lately for a work project It s been surprisingly hard to find published works on western barns most of the lit out there seems to focus on the North Atlantic region or the Midwest So I picked this up but it was really a celebration of the photographer Morley Baer than a celebration of barns The first of three essays was the only one to discuss architecture and it was terrible, terrible, terrible However, the photos were nice to flip through There was a good one of [...]
