Elements of Style A Practical Encyclopedia of Interior Architectural Details
ISBN 0671739816 / 9780671739812 / 0-671-73981-6Find This Book
This book offers comprehensive visual evidence of most of the styles of architecture and interior design that have influenced America and Britain since the Renaissance. It is arranged by period style and indexed by specific design features (staircases, windows, and stoves, for example) through the use of color tabs on right-hand pages. Each period is handled by a separate expert. The glossaries of suppliers and the restoration/maintenance information will appeal to historic preservationists. Altogether, this is an impressive reference work for architects, interior designers, and historians who need a quick fix on a specific style, feature, or detail. - Peter Kaufman, Boston Coll.
