by the Southern Pine Association
This book was first published in 1926 by the Southern Pine Association and was a magnificent example of effective promotion by a trade association. It very effectively illustrates 180 different designs for exterior structures in the garden. It has some 30 fence designs, 26 garden arches and entrance porches, 52 pergolas, summer houses, driveway arches and pieces of garden furniture, and 72 lattice panel designs. The construction of all of these is quite straightforward, but in every instance both a line drawing and a photograph are used for illustration.
The booklet folds because the pages are 12" tall by 18-1/2" wide. This allows a generous open spread 12" tall by 37" wide for easy comparison of styles and photographs.
A few of the designs are unique to the period, but most are traditional and provide exactly the sort of inspiration we all need when planning a garden structure of any type. It is regrettable that books of this range are not produced today.
Softcover, saddle stitched, 24 pages, 18-1/2" x 12", but folds down to 9" x 12" to fit on a bookshelf.
