The Decorative Tile Book

Our Price: $35.00

Product Code: AXDT

This beautifully presented book highlights the way in which the Industrial Revolution transformed the use of ceramic tiles in buildings. The book explores in depth the visual richness of the subject, featuring the variety of techniques used by decorative tile manufacturers and the multitude of ways in which designers, architects and builders exploited the infinite color palette of ceramic glazes. Coupled with design inspirations from around the world and from the history of ceramics, the resulting buildings show how the creative use of ceramic tiles can produce architecture and interiors of remarkable quality.

The authors seek to integrate tiles, their design and manufacture, with the architectural and social environment in which they were used. Sumptuous illustrations, including specially commissioned pictures of previously unpublished tile schemes, provide detailed coverage, especially of the key Victorian period.
