Oblong 8vo. 143pp. Hardback with DJ. In the long history of boatbuilder's efforts to create vessels that allow us to go fast--very fast--across the water under human power alone, the wooden rowing shell has to stand out as the ultimate, shining example of pure, functional grace. This book, in its rich, informed text, detail photos and gorgeous beauty shots is a celebration of the craft of building them, the craft (really the art) of rowing them and, of course, the crafts themselves. If you've ever been fascinated by these lovely, largely hand-built vessels, or if you are considering acquiring one, or if you already own one, you owe it to yourself to give this one a gander.
