Description

The Tile Book
by Terry Bloxham

Across the world, tiles add colour and decoration to the façades and interiors of buildings. Both functional and decorative, and found in a multitude of shapes, sizes and designs – ranging from complex geometrical Islamic patterns to figurative 17th-century Delftware – they are among the most varied ceramic products. This striking book gathers together a diverse collection of ceramic tiles, and explores their rich history, purpose and decorative qualities.

An introduction traces the little-known history of tiles, from their earliest mass production in Europe in the 13th century to today, and presents the development of different types of tile. This luxurious sourcebook, curated by award-winning studio Here Design, is organized chronologically and features tiles in every variety of shape, displaying each individual tile type – and often with its overall laid pattern – in vivid colour. Tiles are also shown in situ around the world and at different periods in their remarkable history. This book is a dazzling mosaic, with colours and patterns that will uplift and inspire.
