Publisher's description: Donovan Wylie's The Tower Series, now available as a complete set in a custom cardboard box, reveals the repetitive character of military conflict across diverse geographies and histories. The first book in the series is British Watchtowers (2007) {Worldwide 128493}, which studies the lines of sight from surveillance posts along the Irish border, and reveals a kind of virtual environment that enveloped the border region of Northern Ireland. These towers, constructed in the mid-1980s primarily in the mountainous border region of South Armagh, were landmarks in a 30-year conflict in and over Northern Ireland. The second book, Outposts (2011) {Worldwide 146658}, charts NATO observation posts in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. Built on natural promontories with multiple lines of sight, these outposts formed a protective visual architecture and were frequently positioned on defense locations established during earlier conflicts. North Warning System (2014) {Worldwide 163160} draws a close to his Tower Series. Surveying a radar station just inside the Canadian Arctic, Wylie examines the detection of invisible threats through unmanned observation posts in remote regions.
