[Pattern Book]. Thornton, Rosemary.

The Houses That Sears Built (signed by the author) Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sears Catalog Homes

Gentle Beam Publications Alton, Illinois 2004 Octavo. pp vi, 158. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams, halftones. Indexed, appendiced. Signed by the author.
Between 1908 and 1940, some 75,000 Sears homes were built. And yet, there has been very little research published on the subject. Rose Thornton's book corrects that oversight handily with this new publication. This labor of love of hers will resonate with architectural historians, kit homeowners and readers of Americana, since the kit house was a uniquely American feature of our architectural landscape.
