Description

In Santa Fe: A Walk Through Time, author Kingsley Hammett takes us on a tour of downtown historic Santa Fe, capturing the architecture in both photographs and essays. He tells the stories of the buildings that have come and gone; who lived, worked, and played in them; and the continual changes that make Santa Fe what it is today-a town of adobe architecture that blends with the high desert landscape, a destination spot for art lovers, culinary enthusiasts, and Epicureans alike. Relive the history, nostalgia, and old-time romance of one of America's favorite cities. Kingsley Hammett has been working as a journalist since 1979 and is publisher of DESIGNER/builder magazine. He holds a master's degree in both journalism and humanities/history. Kingsley is the author of three books on New Mexican furniture: Crafting New Mexican Furniture, Classic New Mexican Furniture, and Early New Mexican Furniture. He has lived in Santa Fe, with his wife Jerilou, for nearly twenty-five years.show more
