The author was an American architect celebrated for his work in Gothic Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival design. He also designed notable typefaces. He is credited with creating a distinctive interpretation of Spanish Colonial architecture into the Spanish Colonial Revival Style as a dominant Californian regional vernacular, and also directly influenced the dominance of the Spanish Colonial Revival style in major public and private architecture of 1920s Hawaii. The first part of this book focuses on his architectural design, and the second part of this book features his decorative designs. A beautiful homage to Goodhue's career.
