VAF member Carl Lounsbury has edited a new book, The Material World of Eyre Hall: Four Centuries of Chesapeake History. The book covers the history, architecture, landscape, gardens, and household objects of the Eyre/Baldwin family that have owned the estate since the house was built in 1759. Among its 22 contributors are VAF members past and present, including Susan Buck, Cary Carson, Ed Chappell, and Gary Stanton. The text is richly illustrated with many stunning architectural photographs by VAF member Jeff Klee as well as architectural drawings of the house and its outbuildings by students at the College of William & Mary.
