Storybook Style: America's Whimsical Homes of the Twenties
by Arrol Gellner and Douglas Keister
Storybook Style, the rambunctious evocation of medieval Europe in American housing, was born in the early 1920s and almost forgotten by the late 1930s. It took its inspiration from the Hollywood sets that enthralled Americans of that period and that still appeal to our jaded modern eye.

Red Tile Style
by Arrol Gellner and Douglas Keister
Few forms of American architecture are as widespread, or as popular as the Spanish Revival style. From bungalows and mansions to gas stations and government buildings, its influence—and its fans—can be found everywhere. Red Tile Style is the first comprehensive survey of this diverse category of design.

In Red Tile Style, Arrol Gellner describes the rich history and fertile permutations of Spanish Revival architecture. Packed with more than 300 lush photographs in 240 pages, this handsome volumn ranges from the style's origins in the Spanish colonial churches of the Southwest, to its emergence as a commercial form in late nineteeth century railroad stations, to the nationwide explosion in popularity sparked by the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego. Learned, lucid and pleasing to the eye, Red Tile Style explores the far reaching Spanish Revival influence in today's architecture in all its variations and adaptations. For the serious student and the architecture fan alike, this book is truly a landmark.
