Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0297831267, Hardcover)

Nothing in the 20th century seems to portray age-old values as powerfully as the village. Here the panoramic camera casts new light on this ancient and enduring subject, producing an unusually clear image that captures the closest detail and the furthest viewpoint in one broad sweep. The sheer breadth of this perspective conjures up a remarkable sense of reality, at last showing the whole village green as well as the houses to either side or an entire row of crooked cottages in brilliant detail. All types of traditional English villages are portrayed here in words and pictures, from the stone villages of the Cotswolds and the north to the half-timbering and thatch of East Anglia and the south.
