We’re excited to announce that a revised and expanded edition of Essex, New York Architecture: A Doodler’s Field Guide has been published and is now available for purchase. Just in time for the holidays! We hope that you’ll consider purchasing a copy of this fun, interactive 168-page handbook for everyone on your gift list.
In the summer of 2014 we launched a beta edition of this lighthearted introduction to Essex architecture to encourage community collaboration in the creative process. Many readers provided helpful feedback including invaluable assistance from two Essex residents whose expertise helped transform this edition. We are especially grateful to Todd Goff and Lauren Murphy for contributing their knowledge and perspective. In all candor, this book would not exist without their generosity. Thank you, Todd and Lauren!
We’re proud to present the first official Doodler’s Field Guide to the architectural heritage that distinguishes our unique community. Now, with even more historic Essex properties and an orientation map, Essex, New York Architecture: A Doodler’s Field Guide pairs brief, accessible introductions alongside “doodle challenges” that invite the reader to interact with many of the most representative historic buildings in Essex.
This book is ideal for anyone curious about the rich architectural heritage of Essex, New York, one of the United States’ most intact early-19th-century villages. Resident or visitor — we hope everyone will discover something new! This portable activity guide is appropriate for young adults and adults, tourists, artists, I-can’t-draw-a-stick-figure pragmatists, adventurous “walking tour” explorers and even long distance armchair explorers.
