Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles by Norman Karlson

Book Description

Over 4500 images appear in this beautiful and comprehensive, four-volume set. This massive compilation reveals the great diversity and intrinsic beauty of art tiles produced across the length and breadth of the United States from the late nineteenth through the twentieth centuries. Tile installations of great beauty include panels, individual tiles, and inserts adorning building facades, interiors, furniture, and garden ornaments. These volumes explore the wildly varying themes and distinctive art styles of six regions of the nation. Among the 161 companies represented are A. E. Hull, American Encaustic, Brayton Laguna, California Art Tile, Catalina Pottery, Flint Faience, Gladding McBean, Grueby, Marblehead, Newcomb, Niloak, Pacific Clay Products, Rookwood, Saturday Evening Girls, and Weller. The text includes tile identification as well as valuable advice on collecting art tiles, a glossary, an index, and bibliography. This set is an essential reference for all who are fascinated with the ceramic arts. Regions 4 & 5: Art tiles manufactured in the Southern states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Colorado, as well as the Northwestern states of Washington, and Northern California are displayed in over 700 striking images. Included are tiles from many companies, including: Abington, Arequipa, California Faience, Cathedral Oaks, Newcomb, Niloak, Pigeon Forge, San Jose, Solon & Schemmel, Van Briggle, and Waco.
