Ms. Van Buren has written the authoritative book on identifying the various American residential architechtural styles with ease, simplicity and insight. "House Styles" is a comprehensive review of American architecture from the colonial era to the contemporary period. The illustrations are detailed and depict the features and elements of style characteristic of America's built environment spanning four centuries. I highly recommend purchasing this volume to enjoy reading and keeping on your bookshelf. Brad Dietz
