The Backstory of Wallpaper: Paper-Hangings 1650-1750

The Backstory of Wallpaper: Paper-Hangings 1650-1750 by Robert M. KellyMost books about wallpaper focus on surface design. This one looks below the surface to discover the material culture of wallpaper as it became popular in Europe and was transmitted to the North American colonies during its first one hundred years. It asks important questions; Was wallpaper really only for the well-to-do? Who were the people who bought wallpaper? Who sold it? Who installed it? How much did it cost? This wallpaper book is also a book about interesting characters revealed by archival sources: Jean-Michel Papillon, whose drawings of his craft were intended for Diderot's Encyclopedia,...

Last Futures: Nature, Technology and the End of Architecture

Last Futures: Nature, Technology and the End of Architecture by Douglas MurphyWhatever happened to the last utopian dreams of the city?

In the late 1960s the world was faced with impending disaster: the height of the Cold War, the end of oil and the decline of great cities throughout the world. Out of this crisis came a new generation that hoped to build a better future, influenced by visions of geodesic domes, walking cities and a meaningful connection with nature. In this brilliant work of cultural history, architect Douglas Murphy traces the lost archeology of the present day through the works of thinkers and designers such as Buckminster Fuller, the ecological pioneer...

Building the Nation: Americans Write About Their Architecture, Their Cities, and Their Landscape

Building the Nation: Americans Write About Their Architecture, Their Cities, and Their Landscape by Steven Conn

Moving away from the standard survey that takes readers from architect to architect and style to style, Building the Nation: Americans Write About Their Architecture, Their Cities, and Their Landscape suggests a wholly new way of thinking about the history of America's built environment and how Americans have related to it.

Through an enormous range of American voices, some famous and some obscure, and across more than two centuries of history, this anthology shows that the struggle to imagine what kinds of buildings and land use would best suit the nation pervaded all classes of Americans and...

Old House Care and Repair

Old House Care and Repair by Janet CollingsOwners of old houses are often baffled by the confusing advice they receive from their builders, architects or surveyors who may be more familiar with repairing modern buildings than dealing with the issues associated with traditional houses. Old houses generally require a different approach, one, for instance, which takes account of their need to 'breathe'. Modern solutions do not always recognise that need. This book will help owners, builders and all construction professionals make the decisions that are right for old buildings. It illustrates the long term benefits of using more traditional...

The Weathering of Natural Building Stones by R. J. SchafferProvides a general account of the factors which cause decay of building stones and a summary of the best methods to reduce the incidence of decay.

The Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore: The Greek Lamps and Offering Trays

PembertonThis volume continues the publication of excavations conducted by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore on Acrocorinth.

The lamps include those made from the 7th through 2nd centuries B.C., together with a few Roman examples not included in Corinth XVIII.2.

Brumfield; they support a variety of vessels rather than types of food...

Where Are the Women Architects?

Where Are the Women Architects? by Despina Stratigakos

For a century and a half, women have been proving their passion and talent for building and, in recent decades, their enrollment in architecture schools has soared. Yet the number of women working as architects remains stubbornly low, and the higher one looks in the profession, the scarcer women become. Law and medicine, two equally demanding and traditionally male professions, have been much more successful in retaining and integrating women. So why do women still struggle to keep a toehold in architecture? Where Are the Women Architects? tells the story of women's stagnating numbers in a profession...

@78: It's a kind of magic

@78: It's a kind of magic by Angelo del Amore

This is a true-life inspirational story about a young South African girl, Angelo del Amore, who travelled to Milan two days before her twenty-third birthday for a holiday.

Little did she know her entire life was going to change and how much she would inspire and change all those she had met in Milan in a miraculous way.

This book is a true fairytale that does not speak about the law of attraction or how the power of positive thought and unconditional love can construct as well as heal in abundance; it merely gives the simple actions of manifestation.

Throughout this book you may identify with yourself...

Artemisia Conquers Rhodes: Problems in the Representation of Female Heroics in the Age of Catherine de' Medici

Artemisia Conquers Rhodes: Problems in the Representation of Female Heroics in the Age of Catherine de' Medici by Sheila FfolliottThe ancient queen Artemisia of Caria (r.353-351 BCE), [was] renowned especially for having supervised the construction and decoration of the elaborate funerary monument honoring her husband, Mausolus: a structure so significant that it gave its name to the entire genre. She was deemed a particularly suitable model for early modern women patrons because her actions arose not from her own desire for glory but rather from her devotion to her deceased husband...

The Rhetoric of Power: Della Rovere Palaces and Processional Routes in Late Fifteenth-Century Rome

The Rhetoric of Power: Della Rovere Palaces and Processional Routes in Late Fifteenth-Century Rome by Lisa Passaglia BaumanWhen Francesco della Rovere became Pope Sixtus IV in 1471, his rather prosaic family background was a handicap to his social and political authority. Since he had no "house" connecting him to part of a great continuum, extending deep into the past and far into the future, he used a variety of agents to fashion one. In some places he actively intervened, elevating six members of his family to the cardinalate and placing others in positions of power in the secular world. But in other places, those family members created the images supportive of the house of della Rovere, actions based on a climate...
