   The Kinsey book is a great book for a number of reasons. First it is on a great subject. If your a fan of black and white photography, and like Ansel Adams work, this is equally as good with a different subject. The photos are so big and the detail is so great, it is a nut and bolt counters dream. The book inspired me to build a square foot diorama on a logging scene using the detail in his photographs. I just bought one of the "Ron's books Industrial Archeology Series". It is the "Keane Wonder Mining Company" plan set. The interest in it comes from the fact that I have an overhead tram on my layout and this set lays out the construction of the operation in great detail. It is cheap and supplies anyone with all of the needed info. The plans are large format 11 x 17 heavy stock and comb binding. If anyone is looking for construction detail on primarily structures, the plan sets are fabulous.
