The Sears Homes of Illinois

Last month, I was delighted to learn that the first printing of “The Sears Homes of Illinois” (printed late November 2010), has sold out. That’s very good news. It’s a beautiful book and I’m tickled pink with the way it turned out.

It has 250 color photos of Sears Homes, and of my eight “children” (okay, books), it’s the prettiest of them all.

If you like looking at pictures of early 20th Century American homes (as do I), it’s a wonderful resource.

Oh, and did I mention that it makes the perfect Father’s Day gift?  🙂

    I haven’t been in Illinois (outside an airport) since 1967, and don’t expect to be back, but I bought this book anyway, and have found it a real joy.

    Even if the places are a long way from Seattle, the color pictures are a great enhancement to stimulating one towards more Sears house hunting, and provide a very useful sense of how Sears houses have changed since the original catalogs were made.

    Highly recommended for all mill-cut house fans, wherever they may be.
