Editorial Reviews

Review

“Does any architectural feature evoke more ‘tenacious feelings of welcome, comfort, and nostalgia’ than the porch? Visser here presents a comprehensive, well-researched, heavily illustrated (in black-and-white), and well-written discourse on the history of the porch. . . . A worthwhile read. . . . Recommended”―Choice

“Despite their nostalgic associations and unique status as hybrid indoor-outdoor spaces, porches often go unappreciated or, worse, are renovate beyond recognition. Visser’s 304-page, richly illustrate book aims to rally respect for the porch by examining its long history and paradoxical roles as a stage, a retreat, and an observation post.”―Seven Days

Review

“This is a valuable book covering an important but under-studied subject. It makes a significant contribution to the field by presenting a careful and considered analysis of both the social and cultural significance and the stylistic details of porches.” (Steven J. Hoffman, Coordinator, Historic Preservation Program, Southeast Missouri State University)
