The Preservation of Charleston


A beautifully wrought book, introduced by these storyteller's history of Charleston, full of revealed mythology, glimmers of knowingness, secrets.... challenging us today to consider the possibility of rendering our own day-to-day existence with a kind of artistry and confidence that can survive for 300 years. An unsurpassed collection of photographs that restoration expert Richard Marks attests is a great illustration of the depth and amount of authentic building stock that makes up Charleston and shows these houses in a new light.
