New on our bookshelf today:

Weathervanes of New England
Glenn A. Knoblock and David W. Wemmer

First used to gauge New England’s ever-changing weather, now viewed as American folk art, historic weathervanes have been a part of the region’s skyline for more than three centuries. Focusing on examples that can still be seen in public, this comprehensive study of the development of the weathervane describes changes in form and function from colonial times to the present, and also documents the histories of weathervane makers throughout New England.
