Each type of barge has its own page,  which includes a description, a full colour photograph of the bow and stern, together with photographs taken from other angles.

Pippa & Michael Maclaran  wrote "This book really helps us quicky identify Dutch Barge types thanks to its logical layout, excellent colour photographs and clear text. It describes all the principal characteristics and features of each type without going into excessive detail and explains some of the reasons behind the regional variations. Fortunately it is robustly bound because it's going to get plenty of use in our wheelhouse!"
