"A new design book reveals the Pine Tree State's most
quintessential homes. . . .The Maine House is filled with
homes whose decoration, from slamming screen doors to unfinished
walls and bric-a-brac kitchens, are as quirky as they are charming.
As the book reveals, it's the details--bookcases crammed with
Stephen King thrillers, doors fronted by curtains, and a dose of
practical magic--that get to the essence of what a home in Maine is
all about."-- "Elle Decor"

"The Maine House [is] a visual journey through delightfully ramshackle saltwater farms and fish shacks, to stately stone houses and cozy coastal cottages."-- "New York Post"
