Praise for previous editions: One of the most borrowed books in our library. --This Old house A dizzying amount of detailed pictorial information ... clearly and fascinatingly captioned. --World of Interiors The Elements of Style is the most comprehensive visual survey, period by period, feature by feature, of the key styles in American and British domestic architecture from the Tudor period to present day. A valuable reference guide, the book is designed for owners of period houses, restorers, architects, interior designers and all those interested in our architectural heritage. This revised edition includes a fully updated chapter covering the Contemporary era (1975--present) and a new list of suppliers and resources.
