    David Macaulay is known for his architecturally driven texts which combine the appeal of children s picture books with that of an adult coffee table book delighting readers of all ages Being a fan of Macaulay s Castle and Cathedral , I next turned to Mill Mill deviates from the norm of Macaulay s other works and sadly not in a good way Although Mill is unique in its format of following the construction of than one mill throughout time this doesn t successfully draw attention Even with emphasis on fiction Macaulay has an uncanny way of meshing together educational descriptions with fiction Mill is dry, boring, and unimpressive It simply is not as well written as the other books and lacks the concise ability of making the facts retainable Elaborating on this, the text is lifeless and without any zest Mill feels like either Macaulay was personally not as invested in the topic or gave up on his usual style Whichever reason it is, it is detrimental to the book Mill is too heavy for children but too boring for adults Further, Macaulay s standard way of explaining is absent making Mill a suitable read for someone already processing some knowledge on the topic.The illustrations are also echelons below Macaulay s usual efforts Instead of the mind blowing pen and ink talent which grace the pages of Macaulay s other books the illustrations in Mill are simply mediocre and lack the detail Macaulay is known for.On a positive note, Mill includes unique characteristics such as letters and diary entries of the fictional characters which add depth to the book Further, it is quite evident that Macaulay performed extensive research and thus, retains historical accuracy Plus, as Mill progresses, both the text and illustrations become increasingly better resulting in the thought Here is the Macaulay I know and love Although still not comparable to his other books, it is better than the slow beginning Macaulay successfully demonstrates advancements in technology and industry through time making Mill informative even though it can become overwhelming It helps that each page s text concludes on the corresponding page so that the reader is not flipping back and forth in order to understand the illustrations.The conclusion of Mill is creative albeit, slightly rushed and solidifies the historical value of architecture As standard in Macaulay s work, a glossary is presented at the end highlighting key terms Overall, Mill is certainly the weakest of Macaulay s books I ve read Usually, I am stupefied by both the content and illustrations but in this case the information was difficult to retain and not memorable Although the book is a good introduction to mills, it isn t captivating or even necessarily interesting Mill is only recommended to those with specific mill interest or fans of Macaulay who simply collect his works.

    Another in MacAulay s great books, showing how an Industrial Revolution era mill in this case was built, along with how it fit into the culture that created it His other books in the same spirit are Castle, Cathedral, Pyramid, City, Mosque, and Unbuilding Lots of fun to read with or without kids.

    This is the first David Macaulay book I ve read, and I loved it I ve had a thing for intricately illustrated how things work books since encountering Stephen Biesty s Castle, which I first read when my age was in the single digits Mill, though strictly black and white, fits the same mold The real draw of the book chuckle is, of course, Macaulay s fantastic illustrations These depict both small, local items e.g a comparison of water wheel types, a close up of a fly ball governor, or a cross section revealing building construction techniques on a multi floor factory and large scale, complete perspectives eight bird s eye views of generally the same landscape show the gradual urbanization of the same plot of land over a century Mill is not just a picture book, though There s substantial text on almost all of the 120 pages, telling the story of the development of textile mills on the Swift River in Rhode Island from the 1790s to the 1870s The text is supplemented by excerpts from fictional diaries that reveal how the textile industry was impacted by historical events, such as the Pemberton Mill collapse and the Civil War This is the perfect read for those who love machines or history or both.

    I learned about this book while taking a weaving class at Harrisville Designs in New Hampshire The owner of the mill and company gave us a talk about the history of Harrisville and the woolen mill In doing so, he mentioned this book After visiting Lowell, Mass., and thinking about Harrisville, I grew interested in the history of mills in New England in the 19th century So I found this book It is a fascinating story of the building of the mill, illustrated by lovely, ink drawings of various parts of the process and functions of the mill The illustrations in themselves are worth finding the book But Macauley gives a history of the building of one particular mill, and includes excerpts from journals of people working at the mill that give a window into the lives of people at that time The book also helps me place weaving and the processes involved in the making of cloth into the history of the country While in New England, I learned about the many fires in mills all over the northeast, and this book references the fires by talking about the construction of buildings with fire safety prominent in the planning Fascinating book

    Macaulay, as usual, effortlessly combines text and his trademark pen and ink drawings to describe a monumental construction Here his focus is not on the great works of yesteryear castles, cathedrals and pyramids but rather the Industrial Revolution Mill tells a fictional story about the construction of a series of Rhode Island textile mills over the 19th Century He showcases the quiet brilliance and competence of the initial mill, then goes on to describe the series of advancements that make the waterwheel and machinery ever elaborate and efficient until they are eclipsed by a neighboring steam powered mill Accompanying this are fictional diary entries from people connected to the mill entries that can get surprisingly, archly, dark in tone It s not as transcendent a work as Macaulay s Castle or The Way Things Work, but is quietly brilliant and consistently informative.

    Macaulay describes the various kinds of mills and then goes on to discuss the evolution of textile mills and the industry in New England The illustrations make it easy for the intended juvenile audience to follow along with what is going on and are marvelous Macaulay used readers from historic mill villages to ensure the accuracy of his narrative While the preface of the book makes it clear the mills described in the book itself are imaginary, they are based on mills found in New England during the given time periods.

    This book uses extensive drawings and a smattering of fictional prose simple short stories to explain how textile mills along rivers used to be built and operated The author goes through the construction and operation of three mills, with each being a little larger and complex than the last.

    This book didn t seem that interesting until I realized the book s alternate title could be Factory Fictional case study of the evolution of a small, Rhode Island mill town provides an in depth look at the Industrial Revolution in terms of the built environment.
