Architecture
"Monsters in Stone: Kentucky''s Gargoyles, Grotesques and Green Men", a new books by Gary R. Varner is now available on Kindle books and soon in paperback.

Kentucky, one of four Commonwealth states, became the 15th state of the Union in 1792. It was the birthplace
of both president’s Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, was explored by Daniel Boone, saw numerous battles during both the Revolution and Civil War and is
mostly known for its bourbon, moonshine, tobacco and horses. It is also home to hundreds of buildings, some
on the National Register, which are adorned with thousands of gargoyles, grotesques and Green Men.

Why or how these images came to be part of Kentucky’s architecture, or for that matter the architecture of most of 19th century America, is subject for discussion. Perhaps they were a decorative fad at one time or functioned as metaphors for a troubled
time. Regardless of their origins, they existed in the dawn of time and remain in man's universal unconsciousness—occasionally rising over time through the works of artisans and masons. This book will provide pictorial examples of the images as well as the historical background information.  

Monsters in Stone, 100 pgs, 40+ photographs/illustrations, Index and Bibliography.
Monsters in Stone Kindle Edition
