Bungalow Nation

Bungalow Nation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering stylish yet affordable housing for the average person, the bungalow took the nation by storm in the early 20th century, and was rediscovered in earnest in 1996 with the publication of the authors' American Bungalow Style. That book, the first lavishly illustrated showcase of bungalows, reminded us all of the seductive appeal that had made these charming little homes so popular. This much-anticipated follow-up book takes readers into the living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and baths of the best and most characteristic bungalows from five American neighborhoods where this housing type has flourished: Washington, DC, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Pasadena. Bungalows, while modestly sized, are known for their integrity of design and craftsmanship, and their shape lends itself to a variety of stylistic treatments, from Colonial Revival to Craftsman to Tudor, all displayed in Bungalow Nation. With 350 of Alexander Vertikoff's evocative new photographs from his recent travels and Diane Maddex's reliable, fact-filled text, Bungalow Nation is sure to be an important resource for bungalow lovers and an enticing entrée for those who are just discovering these gems of American domesticity. AUTHOR BIO: Diane Maddex, formerly the director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Preservation Press, is the president of Arche-type Press and the author of many award-winning books on the American home. Alexander Vertikoff's award-winning photographs have been the basis of many books, including Greene and Greene: Masterworks and American Bungalow Style. He is a regular contributor to American Bungalow magazine. Richard Moe is president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Synopsis:

Taking readers into a selection of the most characteristic bungalows from five of America's most bungalow-plentiful neighbourhoods, this volume tells the stories of homeowners who are reviving these houses and the neighbourhoods the bungalows have long enriched.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 238-239).
