9780747814283: Posters of the First World War (Shire General)

The First World War coincided with a golden age of advertising, and throughout the conflict striking and colorful poster art was used to recruit soldiers, promote investment in the war, keep up morale - and, of course, to vilify the enemy. Prominent artists including Norman Wilkinson paired bold images to punchy text to maximize the pieces' impact, and the selection in this book offers an informative guide to the range of posters used and how government appeals and messages were displayed to the general public. From the iconic image of "Your Country Needs You!" to others that take less a less direct approach such as "Daddy, What Did You Do in the War?" and "Buy War Bonds Now!", this book puts the reader in the shoes of the First World War "man in the street".

Excerpts from American Barns:

From the the chapter A Barn by Any Other Name:

Ask anyone in the United States to describe an American barn and the responses will vary. While much has been written about the American barn, there may be no singular structure that typifies it. The nation has an eclectic array of structures, many of which can legitimately be called barns. Some use the word to describe metal-sheathed buildings which arrived at around the time of World War II, but for the most part, a traditional barn is built of wood, or wood and stone. To the purist it must also be timber-framed (post and beam) and well braced or pegged since some early barns were built without the use of pegs. Designs which traveled to the United States with immigrants from Europe and South America as far back as the 1600s have evolved to suit the purposes, landscape, location, and natural, financial and technological resources of the American farmer.

Opinions differ as to the age and location of the oldest standing barn in the United States. Few barns remain from the first half of the 1700s. Barn historian Greg Huber cites the dendro-dated Bull Barn in Orange County, New York, as dating to 1726 while one of the oldest, according to Jon Radojkovic in Barn Building, is the Jones Log Barn in Pennsylvania, built c. 1730. Barn enthusiasts have compiled a list of Dutch-American, English- American, cantilevered forebay barns and swing-beam barns believed to be pre-1780s. In many cases age can be approximated based on evidence of the type of tools used to prepare and fit timbers. Midwestern and southern barns may date as far back as the 1830s. Barns in the far west date from the late nineteenth century. Many barns represent multiple time periods as they have been added onto over several decades. As farm communities grew, so did the scale and sophistication of their barns. One can still find areas where the ethnicity of the community can be seen in its barns. It is a delight for barn lovers to also make note of how builders often left their mark as a structural enhancement or artistic feature.

According to Eric Sloane in An Age of Barns, round barns were America’s first “modern architecture." The circle has spiritual significance, perhaps none more powerfully than its representation of the continuity of faith and life. These barns, along with hexagonal, octagonal, pentagonal, and even decahexagonal (sixteen-sided) and rare oval barns can be found throughout the United States. The greatest number of sides found is twenty. Promoted as being cheaper to build in terms of lumber, they were costlier in labor because it took more skill to build a round barn and if greater than sixty feet in diameter, interior roof supports were needed. Some feature a center silo. Most have a haymow. The nation’s most famous round barn belonged to its first president, George Washington, on Dogue Run Farm, Virginia, now known as Mount Vernon. Though more accurately a sixteen-sided barn, Washington designed it himself and had it built by slaves between 1792 and 1794. It was two stories high, 52 feet in diameter, of brick and yellow pine with a cypress-shingled roof. The barn was rebuilt in the mid-1990s.
