By Stephen M. Salny, introduction by Franz Schulze
First printing of this attractive volume that explores 17 homes designed by "one of America's premier 'great house' architects" (jacket), whose classical style emulates European stately homes – with a catalogue raisonné.
Inscribed first printing of this second volume of houses designed by Ames, conceived and executed in valiant opposition to the rise of the McMansion, existing in a zone "between the abstract and the real."
Illustrated throughout with diagrams, drawings, and photographs of Jersey Devil buildings in both color and black and white. Includes interviews with the four architects: Steve Badanes, John Ringel, Jim Adamson, and Greg Torchio.
