With the revival of interest in traditional design, practitioners, students, and historians have begun to study and use the vocabulary of forms that so enriched our architectural heritage.

This republication of a 1926 study looks at mouldings from historical, practical, aesthetic, and perceptual points of view; Richard Sammons' foreword and a selection of mouldings in use address applications in contemporary architecture. 100 line drawings, 25 photographs

Review:

“[T]his 146-page ode to cove and ovolo [is] worth immersion, even in the modern age.”
- Architect Magazine

“[B]elongs in the library of any practicing architect who regularly draws from tradition, and especially those who teach.”
- Eve M. Kahn, Clem Labine's Period Homes

“As a treatise on ornamentation, this is one of the finest.”
- The Statement
