ABOUT THIS BOOK
Preservation enthusiasts, architectural historians, and anyone caught up in chronicles of life in early Iowa will find much to treasure in Wesley Shank's catalog of the state's historical buildings. Heavily illustrated and clearly indexed, it offers a concise essay on development of the building arts from the first log cabins through the Prairie School structures of Frank Lloyd Wright and his followers. Well over 100 private and public buildings are indexed by city and structure. Emeritus professor Wesley Shank of Iowa State University's Department of Architecture highlights design and construction features, historical associations, and details of ownership, using measured drawings, photographs, and written documentation from the Historic American Buildings Survey.
