A Dime Novel Hidden in the Corn Crib

April 8, 2010

I found this pen and ink sketch of several corn cribs during a little random internet trolling the other day.  Its labeled as being from Eric Sloan’s An Age of Barns.  I don’t have all that much to say about it other than … isn’t it a lovely form.  I love those slanty walls and open slats, which seem beautiful as well as practical solutions for keeping rain out and air flowing.  I’ve never personally seen one set up on glass panes before.
