Editorial Reviews

Review

“In beautiful photographs, architectural renderings and illustrations from patter books of the time, the author showcases the style’s hallmarks…” ~Victorian Homes
 
"Much more than a visual tour of America's 19th-century Carpenter Gothic homes, this book offers a thorough treatment in both text and images. Architecture writer Montgomery traces the style's history, prominent proponents and hallmarks as well as interiors and furniture, and gardens. The illustrations are lavish and include full page photos from The Historic American Buildings survey and by prominent architecture photographers, period etchings and watercolors, and plates from period pattern books.” ~Book News

Not as I expected. Thought there would be many more pictures and floor plans. Quite disappointing. Cover is the best.

I know very little about the subject but was quite impressed with this book- beautiful photos and a well informed text make this a worth-while addition to any book collection.

A wealth of pictures and exact details presented in this book was a needed combination for me. I plan on using both in the construction of my own "retirement" home. Seller was accurate in description, fair price and fast delivery. Thank you.

Full of wonderful photographs and histories. One can definitely be inspired to renovate a home to this style. It's a good read for the coffee table, or as an idea source for a project (which we are currently undertaking).

Lovely photos take you to an era of charm and detail. You think that you are looking at dollhouses, but these are real homes. Stunningly brought to life in this book.

The pictures of various cabins are wonderful. I am making our small cottage into a gingerbread cottage and this book has given me a lot of great ideas.

I was so happy with this book. It is very large and thick, full of the drawings and descriptions of Victorian architecture, with quotes of the architects and designers of the era. The pictures were lovely.
