Overview

The Tudor house has attracted America homeowners for more than a century. Its basic elements-the steep-gabled roofs, mullioned windows made of leaded glass, and half-timbering-are instantly recognizable. This book showcases the wide variety of Tudor homes and provides interior design inspiration for Tudor homeowners. Surprisingly, given the extreme popularity of Tudor homes in the United States, no other book exists on this topic.

Photographer Paul Rocheleau has traveled across the United States capturing the unique Tudor styles each region offers. The Tudors presented range from modest homes to grand estates, making this a perfectly accessible book. Photographs of streetscapes that feature Tudors in line with other Tudor homes or neighboring more modern styles are also included. In addition, interior photographs accompany text by preservationist Lee Goff.

Tudor Style will delight architecture enthusiasts who have been long waiting for a book on this favorite architectural style and offers a rich array of furnishing and decorative inspiration for homeowners.

Author Biography: Lee Goff is a historic preservationist, writer, and photographer. She is a member of the planning committee of the Municipal Arts Society in New York. She is the author of Stone Built and Stone Houses.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This picture book surveys the popular Tudor Revival of the early 20th century, the most recognizable features of which are gabled roofs, leaded windows, and half-timbering reminiscent of buildings from the 16th-century Tudor monarchy in England. About 25 estates and smaller homes are pictured in gorgeous color plates, with economical description provided by architectural historian Goff. Most Tudor Revival homes were built in the Northeastern suburbs, but this book extends coverage to include the Midwest and West Coast. Small homes in Teaneck, NJ, are included, along with multifamily housing in Forest Hills Gardens in Queens, NY, America's first garden city. This classic coffee-table book will appeal to architects and interior designers who are always hungry for visual stimulation. All of the examples date from before 1940 except one, a postmodern estate in Connecticut for which the book's only plan is provided. For extensive architecture and design collections.-Peter Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
