From 1925 to 1929, two young architectural draftsmen set out to record a select number of examples of the “minor domestic architecture” of Mexico due to a lack of measured drawings of rural ranch houses and Monterey-inspired dwellings. The result is a wonderful collection of houses from the days of Mexico's viceroys, elaborately presented in this handsomely illustrated book. Every aficionado of architecture or home design will find the patios, window designs, and floor plans a delight to look at. Over two-hundred illustrations, including forty-two pages of measured drawings and floor plans, make this a comprehensive reference guide as well as an elegant coffee table book.

Atlee B. Ayres was one of the most prominent Texas architects of the early twentieth century. In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ayres was involved in more than five hundred architectural projects, principally in San Antonio and South Texas, but also in Kansas, Oklahoma, and New York. His architectural successes include distinguished public buildings such as San Antonio's first skyscraper, the Smith Young Tower, as well as private homes, businesses, churches, and five buildings on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. However, it was in the houses he designed that the influences of the refined eclecticism for which Ayres became known are most evident. In the beautifully illustrated The Eclectic Odyssey of Atlee B. Ayres, Architect, author Robert James Coote focuses on Ayres's early-twentieth-century residential architecture and the sources from which he drew inspiration. During the three decades Coote examines, Ayres designed nearly two hundred homes in the fashionable San Antonio suburbs of Monte Vista, Olmos Park, and Terrell Hills, homes that even now rank among the most charming in the area. Ayres's eclectic search for inspiration and guidance from buildings of many times and places, American and European, provides a window on the issue of style—an issue that continues to interest those who design houses as well as those who experience them. Coote studies in detail twenty-five of Ayres's houses, not only as representative of styles, but also as architectural compositions—their plans, spaces, exteriors, materials, and structure. Coote has mined an extraordinary collection of drawings, specifications, office correspondence, and photographs of Ayres's buildings to write this insightful treatment of an important architect and the influences that made him both an exemplar of his times and an unusually fine practitioner of eclecticism.

A ground-breaking work when first published in 1931, this classic book is now released in soft cover. A visionary, Eleanor Raymond, A.I.A. explored what she called the, “unstudied directness in fitting form to function.” The book was one of the first systematic inventories of vernacular American architecture and defined Raymond's long and successful career. Beautiful photography guides the eye through examples of authentic colonial architecture in Pennsylvania. Heavy beams, primitive stonework, and detailed paneling are shown, along with doorways, windows, staircases, and rooflines. The author selected works that show traces of the mediaeval spirit as well as early Georgian character found in the oldest settlements in Pennsylvania. Raymond's work records interior and exterior views not only of the smaller houses, but also of barns, mills, spring houses and other outbuildings. It has been praised for being the first to consider the beauty and architectural value of smaller and more primitive structures typical of Eastern Pennsylvania, and integral to the area's appeal. As a bonus for those hoping to restore such treasures, Raymond included 25 pages of measured drawings detailing cabinetry work and molding profiles.
