Cape May's Gingerbread GemsBook - 2015
Sixty-five color images of summer cottages and guesthouses create a treasured souvenir for all who have visited New Jerseys southern cape, and an indispensable reference for anyone who loves Victorian Era architecture and exterior ornamentation. This is a visual smorgasbord of Victorian architecture and ornamentation, adorned with sparkling coats of colorful paint. Gorgeous examples of Carpenter Gothic, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Edwardian, American Bracketed Villa, and Stick Styles are presented. Most date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, and all are dripping with finely wrought wood bric-a-brac and ornaments. Includes work by celebrated architects Frank Furness, Samuel Sloan, and Stephen Decatur Button.
