    An excellent book Beardsley places this work in a cultural and artistic context, referencing Breton and Dubuffet, while also attempting to uncover the common underlying themes and motivations He also deals with the ambivalent ways in which these environments are viewed and treated within their requisite communities, an aspect that is overlooked in some discussions of this work The photographs are great, too.

    Fascinating but glad I checked it out from the library not one I ll read over and over If you are driving cross country, check this out when planning your routes and detours Some of the most amazing works were in places one might least expect rural Alabama and Iowa, for example.
