About the book:

Where once we dwelt in soft and furry interiors, surrounded by carpets, cloth coverings, and other dust-prone, hard-to-clean surfaces, we now spend much of our time in tiled rooms surrounded by smooth-skinned appliances. The story of how the modern bathroom and kitchen came to be is told in The Bathroom, the Kitchen, and the Aesthetics of Waste. It was in these two rooms that the greatest transformation in home engineering occurred. A process for bringing clean water in and removing waste water transformed the home into a quasi-organic being, eating and excreting through an alimentary system whose inherent cleanliness influenced the design of the rooms where it was housed. Ellen Lupton and J. Abbot Miller present the history of this change in words and historical images in this attractive and surprisingly informative volume.
