Totems presents Peter Kayafas’ photographs of abandoned buildings in the American West. These portraits of vernacular architecture are reproduced as duotones on generously proportioned pages with classic typography, echoing the dignity and serenity of these intriguing structures. 

With photographic separations by Thomas Palmer, printing by Meridian, and binding by Acme, this volume embodies the highest standards of print production.
