The intent of this book is to memorialize "the oldest and most profound medium of human communication - black lines on a white paper background." In anticipation of doing a book like this, for many years Sloane set aside many of his pen and ink drawings which together in this format provide an autobiographic reverie of this artist/author's life. A great many of the illustrations which appear in this 64 page book are architectural in nature showing barns, sheds, stone fences, covered bridges, toll houses, awning details, all of which serve to graphically explain the use of "shapes of shadow and shapes of light."
