[WEST STOCKBRIDGE, MA]—Berkshire-based writer Gladys Montgomery has authored two new books about architecture, which are being published this year: Storybook Cottages: America’s Carpenter Gothic Style (Rizzoli) and An Elegant Wilderness: Great Camps and Grand Lodges of the Adirondacks, 1855-1935 (Acanthus Press, in collaboration with The Adirondack Museum).
Weaving together contemporary color photography, illustrations from historic pattern books, and photographs, drawings and floor plans from the Historic American Buildings Survey, Storybook Cottages tells the story of America’s Gothic Revival and the houses trimmed with decorative “gingerbread” scrollwork, a style that we now call Carpenter Gothic.
