232 pp, 11 1/4" H. "(E)xtols the Philippines' design heritage and demonstrates how the traditions of yesteryear - through both native and colonial history - have evolved into the main strands of modern-day Filipino style. The text, written by authoritative anthropologists and art historians, traces Filipino style from its pre-Hispanic origins among the tribal and the natural; through the cosmopolitan influences of Spain, China and the Americas; and explores the most modern and varied examples of Filipino architecture today. The final chapter brings readers into the traditional 'ilustrado' homes of the past by illustrating the refinements of Filipino furniture. The (colour) photographs take the reader on a visual journey through the archipelago's diverse styles. Photographs of interiors and exteriors with details of selected heirlooms and furniture provide a broad view of Filipino style that is sure to inspire any reader to discover more about this fascinating country." Book is very slightly cocked, tiny bump on bottom edge of front board, bump at bottom of front hinge. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
