Art Deco House Styles

The Art Deco period of the 1920s swept away the dark sobriety of Victorian living, replacing it with houses that were light, colourful and exciting.

This is the perfect book for those who want to learn more.

About Author

I trained as an artist, photographer, and map maker and use these illustrative skills to make easy to understand books about my favourite subject, English buildings. They are aimed at people who might be renovating, tracing the history of or just interested in local buildings, with clearly labelled drawings, diagrams and photos, specifically produced for each book, making them popular with beginners in the subject and students.

They are published by Countryside Books who focus on value for money and hence most of my books have listed prices from only £4.99 – £9.99.

There are around twenty of my titles available on Amazon including a series on period houses from Tudor times through to the 1950s, famous buildings like Abbeys, Castles and Country Houses, and other subjects as diverse as narrowboats and gravestones!

I was born in Sussex in 1966, and currently live in Leek, on the edge of the Peak District, with my wife and two children. More details on my website: www.trevoryorke.co.uk

    <p>I've bought several of the House series by this author, initially because I'm trying to restore a Victorian-style dolls house and wanted to get the period details correct, but it was so fascinating that I bought most of the rest of the books simply to read for interest.</p> <p>It's extraordinary how much more I notice and understand of Britain's architectural style now that I've read the books. The reading style is straightforward and there are drawings, plans, and photographs to accompany the text, with a handy picture and label description at the start of the terms to be used throughout the book.</p> <p>Highly recommended read.</p>
