Description

The Cottage Book

The Cottage Book is a pictorial showcase of cottages throughout the Bay Area: their interiors, surrounding gardens, patios, and pathways, each an oasis of pastoral life hidden within a dense urban fabric. The photographs focus on the details of living in a minimal space, the collections and eccentricities of cottage dwellers, and those stylistic touches that help create the cottage environment. The introduction by noted Bay Area historian and architectural critic Sally B. Woodbridge, traces the history and development of the cottage tradition, and is illustrated with vintage photographs and line drawings. Internationally recognized architect Donald MacDonald contributes an essay on the future role of cottage design and building in our increasingly crowded cities and towns. A valuable source of ideas for interior design, renovation, and landscaping, The Cottage Book will inspire anyone who wants to make the most out of a small place.
