For this unique book, photographers Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe spent 5 years exploring the Grand Canyon searching for locations where others had created their images and recreating them with a fun twist. Their resources were landscape shots taken from old souvenir postcards, drawings and historic photos that they expertly recreated using todays technology. Klett and Wolfe wisely gave the images a wider view and placed them in context by adding cars and tourists illustrate the passage of time. This is an interesting and highly entertaining look the Grand Canyon, a beloved national treasure.

Sylke Jackson is a writer and a teacher with a true passion for architectural preservation. This book clearly expresses that passion as we join Jackson on a virtual tour of the US and Canada to explore lighthouses. This is both an educational and a visual treat since Jackson wisely included a brief and high informative history of lighthouses from the Roman era to the twentieth century and a history of each of the structures photographed.
