I am a Realtor® and wanted to know more about the character of houses as well as be able to hold a knowledgeable conversation with other industry associates about design and furnishings. This book is a good asset for such learning. I thought the pictures would be actual photographs, yet they are hand drawn by the author. I also thought it would be easier to locate specific items/definitions, yet you have to do some "seek & find", which is still a great way to learn. Good coffee table book and continuing education piece! The shipper was great and the book was in good condition as noted.

Muy bien ilustrado y de buena comprensión, enfocado principalmente al diseño de interiores... Asimismo con un análisis simple de algunos arquitectos relevantes en la historia.

It was excellent
