Visontai,David
This book invites the reader on an exciting visual journey that shows with purpose the architectural elements that are often overlooked. These hidden details can only be discovered by careful observation and through the art of photography. An important element for creating beautiful photography is that of natural light. The creators of this book were aiming to show the chosen buildings in a specific contrast of light and dark, making the invisible become visible. This method of presenting the churches attempts to awaken the desire in the reader to discover these details for themselves, making it a spiritual experience. It contains text in English, as well as in Italian, German and Hungarian languages. 133pp.

Bryan, Liz
Experience history and the outdoors in "Country Roads of Alberta", an intriguing new photographic guidebook that takes you to places you've never been before. Alberta's scenery is as diverse as its topography. Fringed along its western edge by high mountains, the land descends through foothills to stretch into undulating plains sculpted by ancient ice into ridges, hills and deep coulees. Under the changing light of the prairie sky, the rolling landscape reveals tipi rings and medicine wheels - remnants of the first people to call this land home - as well as marks of later civilisation: homesteads, old barns, churches and the graveyards of the first immigrants.Antelope, wild goats, moose, beaver, prairie dogs and birds are among the bountiful wildlife that flourish here. In "Country Roads of Alberta", Liz Bryan guides readers along the back roads of this beautiful landscape. In addition to driving directions and maps, Bryan includes snippets of archaeology, history, geology and other interesting information. The heart of her book, though, is in her magnificent, full-colour photos that celebrate Alberta's many landscapes - some still wild, and all most beautiful. 160pp.

Cooper, Jim
Log homes have come a long way from the wilderness cabins of colonial pioneers. With the advent of new technology and the ever-increasing skill sets of contractors, log homes have become one of the most luxurious kinds of homes built in America. With multi-gabled rooflines and glass-fronted living areas, these sophisticated homes have captured the interest of architects and homeowners alike. In this updated and revised third edition, Jim Cooper includes new information on 'green' construction techniques and materials. Whether planning a new log home or simply interested in learning more about them, readers will find all of their questions answered here. 288pp. N.B. Corners slightly bumped.
