This is a beautiful book, originally published in 1902, republished soon, that shows the original 58 plates drawn by renowned designers of the day, of architectural elements, for inside and out. First published when the Art Nouveau movement was brand new, the illustrations are richly detailed with just enough text to explain each. This would be an invaluable resource for any student of architecture, interior design, art history, or those artistically inclined. I, being a lover of all things old, would love to employ some of these elements in and around my home. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for review. My thanks to them. I love it!
