Description

Fences is the first in a series of beautifully-produced books that feature authentic architectural patterns from the two previous centuries. Readers will find a treasury of period fence details-including pickets, pales, piers, and gates-as well as fence ornaments such as finials, caps, balls, and urns. This one-of-a-kind book is the result of the author's 12 years of architectural research and extensive travel documentation.
