this is a quick guide for sure. If you're walking around a city and just want a reference with a few identifying features explained, this is fine.

Not comprehensive and some of the photos used I disagreed with the categorization of the style it said it was. Buy A Field Guide to American Houses instead.

Good seller. Works great, thank you.
  • Pemand
Not what I was looking for.
  • Hugighma
Very good if you want a quick overview of the different types of architecture styles. Definitely not an in depth text book which is what i exactly wanted. Quick and easy read. Great illustrations too.
  • great ant
This book was the good quality I was hoping for and it came really quickly. Nice straightforward book if you want to learn some basic information about architecture.
  • Arlelond
This book could be concidered a fun reference book. It has many photos and illustrations for each style. I like the unsual dimentions of the book. Each style is shown in photos, diagram, and words. The examples chosen for each style are not necessarily the ones that are commonly used in textbooks. If you are a budding architecture fan, I believe you will enjoy this book.
Great guide to help distinguish architectural styles.
