Title: Mexican House Old and New
From the Publisher:
California and the Southwest share more than a border with Mexico. Much of our food and many of our customs have migrated north; our living spaces especially have been enriched by the vernacular architecture and decoration that flourish to our south. First published in 1960 and now brought back with this new edition, The Mexican House: Old and New, is a wonderful document of that style of building and decorating. Over three hundred crisp and evocative black and white photographs capture the play of light and shadow on the stucco walls and decorative doorways. We see facades and entryways, arcades, iron-grilled windows and balconies. Then we move inside to the courtyards and patios and the rooms beyond. Lighting fixtures, fireplaces and ceiling details are examined before we move outside once again to study roofs, pools, and fountains, pavement designs, garden walls, and staircase construction.
