About this title


From the old-world charm of ancient windmills to the stark graphic beauty of modern wind turbines, here is a gorgeous collection of dramatic and intriguing views of these time-honored structures. With exquisite images on nearly every page, this unique volume celebrates not only the windmill, but the time and the world it represents. See why no two windmills are alike, and the reasons for these differences, from the spare ascetic versions popular in the North and South American plains to the old European towers of Holland. Explore the windmill's form, function, and styles; their interiors, through diagrams; the milling life; the literary windmill (including its most renowned use in Don Quixote); windmills on land and sea; in different parts of the world; and even windmills of the future.
