Earthfast… the Dawn of a New World
The first book to provide a comprehensive description of French, Spanish and English architecture in 16th and early 17th century North America has just been published.
Until about two decades ago, there was a deep black hole in American History. It was the period between the first attempts at colonization by France, Spain and England, and the mid-1700s, a time from which many buildings still survive. This void was partially filled with frontier myths and academic speculations, but generally ignored by architectural historians.
