The definitive study of the complex inspirations and cultural influences that were fused in the Shingle Style of wooden suburban and resort buildings of the period 1872 to 1889. The author presents the published designs and the written statements of the architects, as well as contemporary criticisms of the buildings to analyze the development of the Shingle Style. An analysis of the Colonial Revival is central to the work, which is now enhanced by the addition of an extensive related chapter on the "Stick Style" of the midcentury. A new preface has been added, and the bibliography and footnotes are brought up to date.
