Theory of Mouldings (Classical America Series in Art and Architecture) Hardcover – July 17, 2007
C. Howard Walker (Author), Richard Sammons (Foreword)
With the revival of interest in traditional design, practitioners, students, and historians have begun to study and use the vocabulary of forms that so enriched our architectural heritage.
This republication of a 1926 study looks at mouldings from historical, practical, aesthetic, and perceptual points of view; Richard Sammons’ foreword and a selection of mouldings in use address applications in contemporary architecture. 100 line drawings, 25 photographs.
C. Howard Walker (1857-1936) was a distinguished Boston architect.
