This beautiful hardcover volume explores the structural tile vaulting system brought to the U.S. by Rafael Guastavino, tracing its Mediterranean roots and charting its history as a beautiful and popular construction technique found in some of the most notable buildings in America. Look for a review of this new book by Clem Labine in the February 2011 issue of Traditional Building magazine. A wonderful and important title!
