Place of Publication: Great Britain

A unique children's activity book by award-winning illustrator Sara Fanelli, whose experimental, collage-based style is frequently imitated but never bettered.which the Industrial Revolution transformed the use of ceramic tiles in buildings. It not only brought entirely new techniques and equipment for production but created an expanding world market for decorative building materials. This book deconstructs in depth the visual richness of the subject, exploring the variety of techniques used by decorative tile manufacturers and the fascinating ways in which designers, architects and builders exploited the infinite colour palette of ceramic glazes. Coupled with design inspirations from the history of ceramics around the world, the resulting buildings show how the creative use of ceramic tiles can produce architecture and interiors of remarkable quality. The authors seek to integrate tiles, their design and manufacture, with the architectural and social environment in which they were used.Sumptuous illustrations - including specially commissioned pictures of previously unpublished tile schemes - provide detailed coverage, especially of the key Victorian period. This book benefits profoundly from the authors' years of experience with tiles, designs and architecture, from which this truly authoritative coverage has been distilled.

Traditions and sources; the marriage of art and industry; the Gothic revival; cool, clean and hygienic; tiles and the home; the architecture of illusion; the craft tradition; tiles in the modern era; directory of designers and manufacturers; museum collections.
