The richly varied design of American domestic architecture unfolds in spectacular photography in this handsome volume, which explores the highroads and byways of a fascinating subject, from the first crude colonial shelters to the sleek, streamlined “machines for living” designed by the early Modernists. Architectural historian Robin Langley Sommer traces the many ethnic and regional influences that played their part in the development of this distinctive built landscape.
