Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like a crack archaeologist who extracts a wealth of historical information from a minor artifact, Paul Duchscherer takes a very specific, mundane aspect of residential architecture--the bungalow door--and explains how it came to reflect the aesthetic principles and shifts in taste that influenced bungalow design in general. A restoration consultant, Duchscherer also offers advice to current bungalow owners on evaluating and improving their own front doors. Douglas Keister's full-color photographs focus primarily on the front door but include examples of interior and side doors, as well as close-up shots that illustrate the handsome metalwork, art glass, and joinery that were hallmarks of Arts and Crafts design.

Book News Annotation:

San Francisco resident Duchscherer runs an interior design business specializing in period projects; Keister is a renowned photographer of historic architecture. They provide restorers, remodelers, builders, architecture buffs, fans of the Arts and Crafts movement, and bungalow dwellers with a succinct overview of the design, craftsmanship, and materials of bungalow doors. Illustrated with 50 color photographs and b&w illustration. No subject index.
