Product description

With even more entries and more vocabulary words, this second edition of Pevsner's Architectural Glossary covers the complete range of technical terms used in the storied guides. Pevsner's famous designations E. E. and Perp. are among the terms clearly explained in this informative glossary drawn from the vocabulary of the Buildings of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland volumes. Anyone who has wondered how a headstop relates to a hoodmould or what a squich looks like will find their understanding and enjoyment of architecture enhanced by knowledge of its components, styles, and ornament. This clear and practical primer to looking at all the elements of buildings will enliven any architectural exploration.
