Acknowledgements

Attempting to chart and distill the history of western architecture into 49 different styles, each with six visual characteristics, is no small task, and one that would have been even harder without the countless other authors who have trodden the ground before me. Their works (many of which are included in the present volume’s bibliography) have made this book possible. It is to them that I refer the reader for more rounded accounts – both in detail and argument – than can be included here.

This book is dedicated to Johanna Harding for her loving support and patience during the many months of early mornings and late nights when the book was written.
