Book Review - ‘Lighthouses: A Close-Up Look’ by Alan Giagnocavo and Historic American Building Survey

"Why do lighthouses touch us so deeply? Is it the idea of a light piercing the darkness to guide us to safety? Perhaps the image of a strong sentinel rising against the sky inspires us. Whatever the reason, lighthouses capture our imagination, a symbol of an era before GPS and other electronics directed our travels.

Alan Giagnocavo and the Historic American Building Survey tap into the mystique of lighthouses in a volume that goes beyond the typical picture book and explores the inner workings of these intriguing structures. Working with archival documents and photographs, “Lighthouses” gives a depth of information often overlooked."
