Traditional stone

im doing a building at the moment where i need to detail traditional stone structure with wood supports. Does anyone know a book which i read to see some drawn details. Its all about flashy details nowadays, its becoming difficult to find the traditional methods once more!

what is your definition of "traditional"? Many of the old stone traditional structures have walls that are 48" thick. The detail has to fit the overall scale of the building, so you need to clarify your request.
