9780714836317: Gothic Revival

This expert and extensive tome traces the story of the Gothic Revival from its very beginnings in the 'Gothick' experiments of the eighteenth century to its ultimate embodiment in the Houses of Parliament. Gothic Revival primarily concentrates on the domestic forms of the style, from its use in country houses to its influence on the city streets of Europe and America: this previously unexplored angle reveals a series of incisive insights into the human side of this legendary architectural style. A visual delight as well as an essential work of reference, Gothic Revival covers the influence of the style in every aspect of furnishing and decor through the work of such great designers as Pugin, Wyatt, Viollet-le-Duc and Burges. The style's worldwide and long-standing influence is amply demonstrated in the rich and numerous illustrations of architecture, textiles, wallpapers and furnishings.
