Gustav Stickley pioneered a form of architecture based on beauty, simplicity, utility, and organic harmony. This inexpensive reprint of a very rare catalog testifies to the enduring charm of his designs. It comprises numerous architectural drawings and photographs of Mission-style homes, including floor plans and descriptive text."Planned for comfort, convenience, and economy," each of these homes features a simple arrangement of rooms and sturdy structural features. Combining good taste with practicality, they offer openness for common household life, as well as sufficient seclusion for privacy. Models range from a two-family house of cement or stucco to a nine-room cottage of brick and shingles and a seven-room country bungalow. Restorers of old houses, preservationists, and students of American architectural history will prize this well-illustrated treasury of authentic plans and details.
