Over 50 shingle homes in the continental United States displayed in over 500 color photographs, including multi-million-dollar residences, smaller mansions, cottages, and renovated shingles. Their sites are as varied as their designs. Some are on the coastline, others peer through trees on city streets; while some occupy an island or sit in the middle of a vineyard. The Shingle Style homes of today are compared to some of the famous shingles from the past: Naumkeag, Stonehurst, and the Folly.

National architectural magazine now in its fifteenth year, covering period-inspired design 1700–1950. Commissioned photographs show real homes, inspired by the past but livable. Historical and interpretive rooms are included; new construction, additions, and new kitchens and baths take their place along with restoration work. A feature on furniture appears in every issue. Product coverage is extensive. Experts offer advice for homeowners and designers on finishing, decorating, and furnishing period homes of every era. A garden feature, essays, archival material, events and exhibitions, and book reviews round out the editorial. Many readers claim the beautiful advertising—all of it design-related, no “lifestyle” ads—is as important to them as the articles.

The Battle Road in Massachusetts is perhaps the most historic few miles in early American history. At Lexington, soon after Paul Revere and his cohorts roused the village from sleep, a trigger was pulled on the Lexington Common and that shot "was heard round the world." The American War for Independence had begun. Eight dead Americans were left on the green as the British marched on to Concord and the battle at the bridge. These events and many others are retraced in this wonderful new book. Using antique postcards, the authors tell the Revolutionary War story and the rest of the history of the Lexington-Concord region. This was a center of intellectual and social activity in the 19th century and home to distinguished thinkers and writers, including Thoreau, Emerson, Alcott, and Hawthorne. Over the years millions of people have visited the region commemorating their visit with postcard images of the places and events they saw. Perserved in scrapbooks and memory boxes, they now offer a visual history of special place.

Consider the lowly shingle. Rarely has a single building material had such a metamorphosis in its architectural influence. Shingle Style presents 165 modern designs from 20 of todays finest home designers and architects. These professionals make the most of modern interior floorplanning: built-ins, storage areas and efficient traffic flow from room to room. Their exteriors, however, maintain the classic look and influences from the turn of the 19th Century.

As the definitive study of the complex inspirations and cultural influences that were fused in the Shingle Style of wooden suburban and resort buildings of the period 1872 to 1889, Mr. Scully's book has received much critical acclaim. He presents the published designs and the written statements of the architects, as well as contemporary criticisms of the buildings to analyze the development of the Shingle Style from Richardson's early work to Wright's first house in Oak Park. An analysis of the Colonial Revival is central to the work, which is now enhanced by the addition of an extensive related chapter on the "Stick Style" of the mid-century. A new preface has been added and the bibliography and footnotes are brought up to date. "The last section of the book, on the origins and early development of Frank Lloyd Wright, is one of Scully's best. This chapter...shows a mature understanding and a just handling of the academic tradition and of the early work of one of America's greatest architects."--The Art Bulletin "Scully's research is exhaustive, his scholarship impeccable. His illustrations alone form a gold mine of information on the period."--Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

"In Rustic, author and photographer Bret Morgan illuminates this much-loved style, giving us the definitive volume on the subject. Comprehensive in scope, Rustic visits twenty retreats that span the breadth of North America and over a century of architectural and social history. They include consummate examples of traditional rustic architecture - including the Ames Gate Lodge, H.H. Richardson's sublime pile of boulders in Massachusetts; Camp Topridge, Marjorie Merriweather Post's compound of drop-dead rustic luxury in the Adirondacks; and the Charles Millard Pratt House in southern California, an exquisite Arts and Crafts winter home designed by Greene & Greene - as well as a varied and inspiring selection of contemporary homes that includes Fortune Rock, George Howe's striking modernist home on the coast of Maine; Robert A.M. Stern's nostalgic Spruce Lodge, hidden high in the Colorado Rockies; and Ledge House, Peter Bohlin's singular masterpiece of rustic modernism in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland." --Book Jacket.
