An absolute must have
Being a big fan of McKim, Meade, and White, this latest offering from architect Sam White is absolutely essential in that the book offers new photographs and quality interpretations of the emerging elements of style which so captured the Gilded Age spirit. Particularly gratifying to this reader was the inclusion of the earlier residential works which offered a measured perspective of the firm's work up until their more acclaimed municiple commissions. Unfortunately the book's scope is so immense that early house appendages such as superintendent cottages and carriage houses are not represented. However, the book will certainly become the indispensable classic that accords Stanford White and the Shingle Style it's place in the American Architectural pantheon as a whole.Was this review helpful?
