Barns of Iowa

Heritage of a Bountiful Land with Haiku

by Hyatt Moore

Swedish immigrant farmers who transplanted themselves to the soils of Iowa contributed to a powerful architectural landscape. The barns they built were designed with a combination of practicality and functionality, as well as an identity of individual family roots. Teaming with the University Park Inn and Suites in Ames, Iowa, painter Hyatt Moore paid tribute to these monuments of labor and lumber. With over 100 barns, each painted in its own unique style, then with haiku added by the painter, the book is a delight to any fascinated with barn culture, with Iowa landscapes or a colorful and artistic approach to life in general.
