Last month, we blogged about a pre-release party being held on First Friday for York author Scott Butcher’s most recent release, “Historic Architecture of Pennsylvania.” Attendees could place a pre-order for a signed copy.
Well happy First Friday for January — the books are in! Copies are now available through Schiffer Publishing for $34.99. Visit www.schiffer
books.com for details.
Below is a description of the book:
“Nestled among the rolling hills of South Central Pennsylvania, six counties — Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, York — are home to more than three centuries of history and architecture. Beginning with early eighteenth century buildings, almost every style of American architecture is featured in the region’s mid-sized cities, charming towns, and quaint villages. Susquehanna Valley buildings showcase excellent examples of Colonial, Early Republic, Victorian, and twentieth-century architectural movements.
“Featured are educational narratives of three dozen styles as well as special sections on a variety of building types, including farmers’ markets and train stations, all brought to life by more than 180 full-color photos. Join author and photographer Scott D. Butcher on an enlightening tour featuring the best of American architecture as seen through the eyes of the region’s architects and builders.”
