    Book details


Enjoy an amazing assembly of historic images of half-timbered buildings from across Northern Europe. These striking, two-tone buildings range from humble cottages to turreted estate houses. More than 250 real photo and hand-tinted Victorian-era postcards provide countless opportunities to study the decorative applications of original, exposed woodwork, as well as historically-acurate roof gable angles, jetties, dormers, turrets, windows, doorways, and much more. Detailed drawings help illustrate the framing and decorative details, from mullioned windows to ornate chimneys and wainscoted walls, and some interior photography and illustration has been unearthed. This incredible collection helps to define the beauty of authentic timber-framed structures and personify the architectural traditions that inspired the Tudor Revival and Stick Style movements in the United States, and continues in appeal for today's custom-home builder.
