Publisher Description

First published in 1996, this classic pictorial tour of wooden boats showcases a rich collection of images by Benjamin Mendlowitz, the preeminent photographer of wooden boats. The result is a stunning guide to sailboats and their rigs with text by the renowned marine historian Maynard Bray-a true feast for the eyes as well as the imagination. Now available for the first time as a paperback edition, complete with Joel White's foreword and a new afterword by sailor and writer Roger Angell, this gem of a book is sure to delight both lifelong boaters and newcomers to the nautical world.

Review
“Supplementing Mendlowitz's breathtaking camera artistry are captions by Maynard Bray. This pair works together like strawberries and shortcake, and the final result is just as sweet.” — Bangor Daily News “An indispensable reference for anyone interested in their beauty, romance, and craftsmanship.” — Messenger Press, Chicago
