The classic book Bricks and Brownstone, the first and only book to examine in depth the architectural styles of the much-loved New York row house or “brownstone,” helped pave the way for a brownstone revival that transformed the very appearance of the city. This edition features new and updated text, and an abundance of all-new colour photography, and offers to an eager audience the long-awaited reissue of the landmark volume in renewed and brilliant new form.
Because this book so beautifully illustrates the unique decorative features of the different architectural styles – the doorway framing, the ironwork embellishments, the handsome mantels, and the sometimes elaborate ceiling ornamentation, among other elements – it is an invaluable resource for the thousands who have undertaken the restoration of a row house to its original appearance
