Larkin is the editor-designer of the best-selling Barn and Shaker and the author of Farm, among many other books published here and abroad. He currently lives in Cherry Plain, New York.From Library Journal:
This is a beautiful, lavishly illustrated book about the history and glory of wooden craft of all sorts. Spectre, a boating writer, begins with the construction of Viking ships and progresses through the age of the fighting sail. He concludes with the building of present-day wooden power boats and yachts. Larkin's many fine photographs enhance the text. The price is not out of line for a work of this ilk, and many libraries will want to consider it. Recommended.
