 Coffee Table (and Over-Sized Books) for Summer Reading (One)

Book Review

From the University of Illinois Press comes “Barns of Illinois” text by Elaina Kanfer and photos by Larry Kanfer and “Illini Loyalty” by the same team. Both tomes have specialized interest and are driven by images and have a nice Midwestern feel.

BACKLIST:  From National Geographic with introductions by Keith Bellows comes “Drives of a Lifetime” ($40.00, 319 pages) and “Journeys of a Lifetime”  ($40.00, 319 pages). The books are  lavishly illustrated and highlight 500 of the world’s most spectacular and fascinating trips.
