I was expecting a pretty coffee table book about the design styles common to the South West style and what I got was so very much more.
The authors cover both the culture and history of the indigenous people who first developed what we now know as the South West style as well as the development and evolution of the style overall. The go into the techniques used in the designing and building and provide detailed descriptions and diagrams showing things such as fireplace designs, tile designs, everything that goes into these buildings. For all the technical details given the book never felt bogged down or in fact overly technical and you can easily go back and forth through out the book to pick out some new detail you missed before without loosing track of where you are in the book.
And I loved their use of photographs, most of them are in black and white but that is no detraction since most of them are depicting older houses and designs showing both how the style has evolved and yet have also stayed the same and are just beautiful and fascinating to look at both artistically and from a historical perspective.
This is a beautiful and fascinating book that gave me a new appreciation for this style of building and the climate and people who developed it.

This is really a wonderful book.

It is more of a history and anatomy of adobe buildings, rather than a coffee-table book full of glossy color photos. There are loads of pictures of course, it's just not that generic coffee-table style.

The focus on each aspect of the architecture was especially wonderful, with chapters focusing on windows and shutters, flooring, chimneys, doors, etc... That's why I say this is a book on the anatomy of adobe buildings.

I would recommend this title both to long-time adobe aficionados, and to those just beginning to have an interest in this beautiful style.

It's so sad that most of the photos are black and white, which deletes the eye candy appeal a decor book should have...very disappointing...this could have been a very nice decor book if they would have realized in this time and age, it should be in color.
