Synopsis: One of the best studies of vernacular architecture and winner of the prestigious Winterset Literary Award is now available ina paperback edition. Tilting is author Robert Mellin's personal account of the houses, outbuildings, furniture, tools, fences, docks, and way of life of a fishing village on a small island far off the Canadian coast. Part journal, part sketchbook, part oral history, Tilting is a treasure chest of a book that offers new discoveries with each reading and a reminder of the simpler aspects of life and building.

About the Author: Robert Mellin is an associate professor at the School of Architecture at McGill University and a registered architect. He received the 2006 Paul E. Buchanan Award for excellence in fieldwork and interpretation from the Vernacular Architecture Forum.
