Peter Pearson's Decorative Dublin is a feast for the eye, celebrating the city's decorative surfaces in ironwork, brickwork, stone, glass, plaster, its fanlights, doors and windows. The city is full of decorative things whose main function is to delight. Ancient, Georgian, Victorian and modern features are all here. At certain periods everything, even the most practical and mundane coal-hole cover or boot scraper, was decorated, leaving a rich heritage on buildings, pavements, walls, roofs, in gardens and interiors. The book also includes the fascinating stories of crafts and craftworkers.
