Описание: Following upon the success of their first book, The Queen Anne Stool, Tom Heller and Ron Clarkson decided to offer a book about building one of the most desirable pieces of American furniture: the piecrust tea table. This tilting top table has the high elegance of eighteenth century design. The top has a beautifully sculpted molding, resting upon an open-styled birdcage. This rotates on a finely contoured and turned pillar adorned at the vase with acanthus leaves, balancing on a delicate ring of pearls which end in a ribbon and flower design. The cabriole legs are adorned with acanthus leaves at the knees and end in a strongly taloned ball and claw foot. Every step, from cutting and turning to carving and finishing, is explained in step-by-step photographs. These are accompanied with by concise descriptions of the techniques involved. While requiring some basic woodworking skills, this book is designed for cabinet makers and carvers of all levels of experience, so they may produce this treasure of furniture for themselves.

Описание: In the twelve years since Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders was formed, the firm has created a significant body of wooden buildings that are rooted
in the seaside vernacular of the fabled region of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. As a design/build firm led by architects, Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders is
able to reach a level of aesthetic control not normally associated with light construction today. Each project is approached as an individual work of art and craft specifically associated
with its site and client.The eclectic, evolutionary use of architectural history infuses the firm's designs with fresh interpretations of architectural tradition, subtle playfulness, and
The compositional and planning strategies ground the work in the vernacular tradition that evolved into the shingle style; the 'architecture of the American summer' to use
the words of historian Vincent Scully. The experience of the firm's principal designers, John and Sharon DaSilva, includes several years at Venturi Rauch and Scott Brown and Cesar
Pelli and Associates. The book features over twenty houses and a handful of small institutional buildings in photographs by some of the world's best architectural photographers and
drawings by the firm.

Описание: "Classique" introduces 777 of the most inspiring classical LP covers from their heyday, documenting groundbreaking art work and cover culture that is typical for the epoch.

Описание: Based in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, the classically trained architects of John Malick and Associates draw from numerous historical styles, including English Arts and Crafts, Mediterranean, and Georgian Colonial. Each project reflects the spirit of a unique time and place, while also addressing current needs and budgets. The projects featured in this monograph abandon the modern idiom and return to a time when buildings reflected noble achievements, pastoral visions, and sacred resonances. They embrace construction methods that revive the lost art of craftsmanship. Time-tested materials and picturesque details such as post-and-beam construction reflect the care and craft that are the signatures of artistic attention. Authentic finishes and hardware infuse a sense of beauty and livability rarely achieved by modern architecture. Through lush photography and engaging text, the reader is able to experience the sophistication of a Palladian neoclassical villa, the warmth of a Yorkshire cottage, and the sun-washed simplicity of a Mediterranean village nestled in the hills.
