255 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Ontario, more than any other region of Canada, exhibits a variety of architectural styles, building forms and materials. Some buildings reflect the exacting standards of an architect. Others feature an eclectic mixing from many styles, including folk. (This book) explores for the first time the common elements that unite Ontario's varied styles while describing the province's distinguishing vernacular features and forms. More than a guide to 200 years of architecture, it identifies building terms and unique building forms not ecessarily associated with any one style. To illustrate each style, all types of buildings are included, from residences to public buildings and gas stations. The author gently contradicts the traditional view that heritage buildings must be old. He includes many 'modern' twentieth century examples of which Ontario has an abundance. Once having sampled the grammar and vocabulary of our rich and varied architectural heritage, the reader will look at buildings in and out of Ontario with a new discrimmination and perspective." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
