Ceramic tiles are one of the oldest and most universally employed forms of architectural decoration. During the nineteenth century, this medium reached a zenith: this beautifully illustrated book highlights the ways in which the Industrial Revolution transformed the use of ceramic tiles in buildings. It not only brought entirely new techniques and equipment for production but created an expanding world market for decorative building materials. This book deconstructs in depth the visual richness of the subject, exploring the variety of techniques used by decorative tile manufacturers and the fascinating ways in which designers, architects and builders exploited the infinite colour palette of ceramic glazes. Coupled with design inspirations from the history of ceramics around the world, the resulting buildings show how the creative use of ceramic tiles can produce architecture and interiors of remarkable quality. The authors seek to integrate tiles, their design and manufacture, with the architectural and social environment in which they were used. Sumptuous illustrations - including specially commissioned pictures of previously unpublished tile schemes - provide detailed coverage, especially of the key Victorian period. This book benefits profoundly from the authors' years of experience with tiles, designs and architecture, from which this truly authoritative coverage has been distilled.

From removing graffiti in Manhattan to rebuilding a hops barn in Oregon, the National Park Service-a part of the Department of the Interior-has faced just about every problem an old structure can encounter. Here for the first time is a collection of their hardwon know-how and official guidelines, written by the top experts in their respective fields of preservation. Forty-two fully illustrated chapters include: -- cleaning and waterproof coating for historic masonry -- repointing mortar joints -- maintaining historic adobe buildings -- the dangers of abrasive cleaning -- repairing historic wooden windows -- rehabilitating historic storefronts -- repairing wooden shingles -- preserving barns -- repairing stucco -- using substitute materials on historic building exteriors -- mothballing historic buildings -- understanding architectural cast iron There's even a chapter on repairing vintage signs. Each subject is treated with the utmost care and discusses the safest and most historically accurate repairs. Perhaps just as important as the valuable advice on how to undertake various projects, the guides also give invaluable advice on what not to do-based on years of preservation experience-that can save a homeowner thousands of dollars, hours, and perhaps a priceless piece of architecture. For the student or the professional restorer, THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE is the official government text on saving old buildings.
