Storybook Style: America's Whimsical Homes of the Twenties

Storybook Style: America's Whimsical Homes of the Twenties Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of the Bungalow series, here is a marvelous celebration of the twentieth century's most delightful and whimsical architectural style

Storybook Style, the rambunctious evocation of medieval Europe in American housing, was born in the early 1920s and almost forgotten by the late 1930s. It took its inspiration from the Hollywood sets that enthralled Americans of the period and that still appeal to our jaded modern eye. Half timbered and turreted, pinnacled and portcullised, these houses owed their fanciful bravura to architects and builders with theatrical flair, fine craftsmanship, and humor. In Storybook Style, architectural information enhances the stunning color pictures by Bungalow and Painted Ladies photographer Doug Keister to impart a wealth of information and enjoyment.

Synopsis:

In the tradition of the "Bungalow" series comes a marvelous celebration of the 20th century's most delightful and whimsical architectural style. 200 color photos.
