The Decorative Tile in Architecture and Interiors by Tony Herbert Kathryn Huggins.

Decorative ceramic tiles have brightened and graced the architecture of the Middle East and Europe for many centuries, long before and after the dawn of the machine age.

Artisans have created tiles in every imaginable style, from intricate geometry to beautifully expressive portraits, landscapes, and renderings of flora and fauna. The authors, architecture and tile experts both, trace this vibrant tradition from its earliest forms up to today's free-form variations in their thorough, fluid, and unstintingly detailed text.

Herbert and Huggins are as adept in discussing the history of aesthetics as they are in explaining technological developments. Determined not to study tiles out of context, their commentary, and many of the 300 color photographs, focus not only on individual tiles, but also on tiles set in all manner of architectural settings.

These superb plates showcase decorative tiles in places of worship and commerce, palaces and warehouses, delicatessens and city halls, homes and libraries

Published/Edition: August 1995. ISBN/Book No.: 0714831611
