New England Icons makes the perfect holiday gift

by Bruce on July 11, 2011


My new book, New England Icons, is a collection of essays that breathe life into the sights that make New England unlike any other place on earth. Read them, and the next time you drive by a village green or a church steeple, you’ll know a whole lot more than you did before.


Stone walls, lobster boats, sugarhouses, roof walks, saltbox houses, skating ponds, armories (and many more)–each has a fascinating back story guaranteed to blow the dust off these familiar spots.

With pitch-perfect photographs by noted architectural photographer Greg Premru, a foreword by master carpenter (and icon himself) Norm Abram, and a map of where to find the best of these sights, the book makes a great travel companion or coffee-table read for anyone who loves New England.

It’s available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart,  and independent bookstores like Brookline Booksmith, Porter Square Books, and The Concord Bookshop.
