This is a beautiful book, full of color photos of old and new (mostly new) Santa Fe style homes.
If you are looking for how-to advice, historical description, or much text at all, this book is not for you.
However, it was a perfect choice for me, since I was (still am) designing a new home and wanted a wide variety of examples of southwest homes.
There are chapters on entrances, courtyards, and individual rooms, each page filled with wonderful views of both traditional and more contemporary details.
The last section of the book (about 75 pages) focuses on Santa Fe arts, and features baskets, pottery, kachina dolls, furniture, sculpture, paintings and more.
A friend loaned this book to me nine months ago, and after turning pages dozens of times and marking favorites with sticky notes, I finally decided to break down and give myself the gift of my own personal copy.
