    schema:description "In this richly illustrated book, Megan Aldrich traces the story of the Gothic Revival from its beginnings in the small, experimental buildings of the eighteenth century to its ultimate phase in the lavish buildings of the late nineteenth century. The book concentrates on the domestic forms of the style, from its use in castles and country houses to its influence on villas and cottages from the old world to the New World. This book is essential reading for all those interested in architecture and design. It covers the influence of the Gothic style, not only through the work of the great designers such as Burges, Pugin, Viollet-le-Duc and Wyatt, but also through many lesser-known figures. The worldwide influence of the Gothic Revival is amply demonstrated in the large selection of illustrations showing wall, floor and window treatments, as well as furniture. An invaluable source of ideas, this book illustrates much new material and celebrates an important chapter in the history of design."@en ;
