About this title

Synopsis:

The wooden ship is probably the most complex wooden structure devised by man: a vast three-dimensional sculpture built from countless pieces fitted together like a jigsaw. This book explores this structure from its earliest and simplest forms, like the birch-bark canoe, to its modern descendants: the sophisticated racers and pleasure crafts of the 20th century. Each step in this boat-building evolution is illuminated by photographs, diagrams and historical material. From dugouts and dinghys to warships and workboats, this book celebrates the illustrious art, craft and history of wooden boat-building.

About the Author:

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.
