Princeton Architectural Press,
Pub. Date:
Terra cotta ornamentation has enhanced American buildings for more than 100 years, yet this architectural legacy has been controverial, and largely unrecognized and undocumented. The author president of Friends of Terra Cotta in Manhattan, a scholar of ceramics, and a lifelong New Yorker rode her bicycle throughout the city seeking out the most interesting buildings, which are presented here in 75 color photos, accompanied by 100-plus documents, drawings, and archival photos. The text, based on extensive research into the history of terra cotta, provides insights into the working methods of the architects, sculptors, and artisans who designed with terra cotta; the entrepreneurs and laborers involved in its manufacture; and current efforts for preservation. Distributed by Chronicle Books. 10x12.5" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
