Synopses & Reviews
Now in paperback, here is the definitive, definitely inspiring work for homeowners and designers alike. Author Jill Herbers surveys the use of tile in such conventional settings as kitchens and baths, then ventures into less traditional locations like living rooms, foyers, staircases, and home offices. Outdoors, tiles are both beautiful and functional in courtyards, fountains, gardens, and on exterior walls.
Breathtaking full-color photographs showcase this beautiful and versatile craft. Herbers explores the use of tiles through history and as art, culture, and style, examining such topics as terra-cotta, the secret life of glazes, showroom survival, and tiling on a budget. An exhaustive, completely revised source guide provides contact information for artists, showrooms, designers, associations, and "tile experiences," to name just a few.
Now in paperback! The gorgeously illustrated bible on tile, full of innovative ideas for everywhere in the home. Includes updated sources.
