Blaser's well-illustrated book on stone in rural architecture is perceptive and immensely satisfying.
224 pp with French flaps; 142 b&w photos and 28 other illustrations: plans, elevations. In German, English, French.
"Stone as a material and the uses man has made of it are shown from the earliest beginnings" until, eventually "material, construction, and way of life become one." Examples here are largely taken from the southern Alps (Grisons, Ticino.)
