Now in paperback, this authoritative book on house styles explains the unique characteristics that make a house colonial or craftsman, Modern or Deco, and any of the other approximately twenty styles of domestic architecture common in the United States. At a time of near obsessive attention to home design and renovation, this compact, easily accessible guide--the only book of its kind with all-color photography--makes the identification of house styles a breeze. Multiple examples of each house style are provided--the book includes 350 houses from more than forty states--so the reader can see region-specific variations.

Complementing the beautiful color photographs is a selection of line drawings highlighting each style's key attributes. Beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched, this portable volume is a perfect companion for discerning house hunters and homeowners, realtors, design and construction students, and professionals. For anyone interested in architecture, The Abrams Guide to American House Styles is ideal for use at the desk and in the field.
