By Jane Ware

Jane Ware's second volume of Building Ohio is a wonderfully anecdotal revelation of the buildings found in the state's smaller cities and towns, as well as the countryside itself. This is the architecture born of Ohio's great and optimistic pre-1920s energy when the state was near the apex of America's wealth and importance. Building Ohio is filled with stone masons, carpenters, groundkeepers, activists, rehabbers, founders, donors, even a boiler attendant. Ms. Ware's book, the product of eight years plumbing the architectural nooks of Ohio, details the remarkable built landscape of Ohio and the people who left us such a rich heritage. Their work is monumental art, buildings to give us pause—and to instruct and soothe us with their timeless beauty.
