This book provides the architect with sufficient knowledge of decorative and utilitarian metalwork available in copper and its alloys, and what can or cannot be done with them to produce designs that are basically sound. Chapters on color and maintenance are particularly useful. An attractive book with numerous photographs of architectural applications in doors, railings, store fronts, grills, and more utilitarian items such as screws, hinges, wire, locks, handles, and so forth.
