Summer Reading

I have by no means started my summer reading with a short and delightful piece of Chick Lit. It is fiction, yet very historically accurate and set at Salisbury Cathedral built around 1220 in Salisbury, England.

This will provide me with some opportunities to look at Gothic Architecture and it’s influences on previous and current design and the Gothic Revival Period in the United States. The house below is an example of Carpenter Gothic Architecture. It was built in 1854 by Seth Shaw in Ferndale, CA.

In the meantime, enjoy the long weekend. I’ll be reading.
