Guastavino Vaulting (signed by the author)

Guastavino Vaulting (signed by the author) The Art of Structural Tile

Princeton Architectural Press New York 2010 Quarto, pp. 255, Index, Notes, and Selected Bibliography. Richly illustrated with b/w and color photos, drawings, and details.
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!
