MORGAN, WILLIAM / KURZAJ, RADEK
What are the unique characteristics that make a house Colonial or Craftsman, Modern or Deco, or any of the other approximately 20 styles of domestic architecture common in the United States? At a time of near-obsessive attention to home design and renovation, this compact, easily accessible guide - the only book of its kind with all colour photography - makes the identification of house styles a breeze. Multiple examples of each house style are provided - the book includes 350 houses from more than 40 states - so the reader can see the region-specific variations. Complementing the beautiful colour photographs is a selection of line drawings highlighting each style's key attributes.
