In its first paperback edition, this seminal work on the hallmark architectural style of San Francisco is complete with a newly designed cover. Randolph Delehanty's authoritative, accessible text, paired with Richard Sexton's brilliant photographs, traces the development of Victorian architecture and tells the story of how these elaborate yet fundamentally modern homes were conceived and built. Extravagantly illustrated with scores of full-color photographs and line drawings, In the Victorian Style is not only the definitive sourcebook for architects, designers, and owners of Victorians everywhere, but a compelling look at the historical and cultural climate that shaped this eloquent architectural style that is still very much a part of our daily lives.
