California's Mission Revival (signed by the author) - California Architecture and Architects Series, Number III.
Hennessey & Ingalls, Inc.
Quarto, pp. 160. Indexed, Notes and Bibliography, illustrated with b/w photos and drawings.
An excellent study of the Mission Revival style in California, which arose from a romanticized notion of the past, the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement, and the use of new building materials and techniques. Although the style's popularity was relatively short-lived, it was influential and numerous examples survive today. Uncommon. From the Old House Journal Reference Library.
