Antique Homes Magazine presents this Illustrated Style Guide Series, posted for your reference and including a bibliography of reliable style books. The series was written by our editor Nick Langhart, who has taught American architectural history for ten years in central New England colleges–and in New York State previously. He holds an MA in historic preservation from Cornell University. the guide discusses American architecture from First Period origins, all of the emergent Victorian styles and concluding with Post War architecture. We hope that you will find this informative in answering your old house style questions.
