The Globe and Mail - Carolyn Leitch
[Radojkovic's] passion is palpable and rather contagious ... He has an ear for a good yarn and the stories are rich with human interest and detail ... The writing is sophisticated and the author provides solid information on design, construction techniques and history ... [and] filled with fine expamples of barns in stunning landscapes ... A lovely gift for anyone who already has an affection for barns. Mr. Rakojkovic's informative writing wil likely inspire many new converts, too.
PhotoNews Winter 2008 - Jon Radojkovic
When you browse through the pages of Barn Building, you notice that you are taken to the era of the barn itself rather than to the time that the image was taken.... those of us who view his book are privileged to see the beauty in the history, setting and the details of Jon's barns and maybe we will be encouraged to see the beauty in the details of our everyday lives.
The Sun Times (Owen Sound, ON) - Andrew Armitage
Warmly written through the eyes and experience of a barn builder... This is one to enjoy.
ON) The Rural Voice (Blyth
Filled with beautiful colour photos.

Pennsylvania Magazine - Al Holliday
Architects, historians those who appreciate Pennsylvania barns and the variety of construction styles in North American barns will appreciate this coffee table-size volume.
