Sticks and Stones : The Designs of Lew French
Product Code: 37585
ISBN: 978-1-4236-3758-5
Publisher: Gibbs Smith
Binding Information: Hardback

Price:  $35.00


Lew French is a master stonemason who finds and gathers hundreds of individual stones to create a single fireplace or an outdoor stone wall that looks like it had been there for hundreds of years. Rather than use a chisel, his stones have to fit together naturally; he remembers and fits them together in his mind’s eye. From a huge outdoor water feature at an office building near Boston, to a residential landscape on Chappaquiddick, to his own retreat home in the mountains of Brazil, each creation is breathtaking.

New to this second book on Lew French's designs, are gallery-quality, framed art pieces, puzzled together from rock and driftwood, resulting in one-of-a-kind wall sculptures. Fans of natural building and all kinds of masonry will be more than impressed.

Unseen Midcentury Desert Modern

Unseen Midcentury Desert Modern
By photographer: Daniel Chavkin
Product Code: 42053
ISBN: 978-1-4236-4205-3
Publisher: Gibbs Smith
Binding Information: Hardback
Availability: In stock.
Price:  $45.00


In 2008, Daniel Chavkin began photographing some of the more discreet and off-the-beaten-path midcentury modern homes and buildings in the Palm Springs area. These included secret gems created by such famous modernist architects as William Cody and John Porter Clark, as well as others by relatively lesser-known designers. The result is this rich photographic collection of largely unseen examples of desert modern architecture. Many of the buildings shown herein are not easily accessible by, or in some cases completely off-limits to, the general public, so the photographs in this book may be the only opportunity for midcentury aficionados to ever see some of these buildings.

In the cool, wooded mountains of the South, each log cabin has a rich history and a unique personality.

Emily Followill’s stunning photography shows every cozy corner of thirteen homes located in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, and Virginia. The writing tells the story of how each cabin and owner came together; as the owners changed their cabins, the cabins invariably changed the owners as well.
