From the old-world charm of ancient windmills to the stark graphic beauty of modern wind turbines, here is a gorgeous collection of dramatic and intriguing views of these time-honored structures. With exquisite images on nearly every page, this unique volume celebrates not only the windmill, but the time and the world it represents.
