30A Style is a full-color, 192-page coffee table book showcasing 22 Florida cottages and family homes along the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. The book highlights the historic communities and New Urbanist towns. Each home featured in 30A Style is a distinctive expression of the personality of its inhabitents and the characteristics of the terrain. Take a journey with Eleanor Lynn Nesmith and photographer Jean Allsopp along Scenic Highway 30A, for their words and images illustrate why this vivacious, pristine stretch of coastline is so special. Decades before Seaside drew national attention in the 1980s, generations of Southerners flocked to South Walton s pristine beaches for summer holidays. Santa Rosa was a thriving town and Grayton was emerging as a coastal resort a hundred years ago. The book offers both the novice and aficionado of architecture an engaging take on why homes matter to a community and how communities come together. Whether the owners are born-and-bred locals or loving transplants doesn't matter. They share a passion for the locale and belief in a broader purpose. 30A Style is a celebration of a unique way of life along the Gulf of Mexico.
