Description - Towers, Turrets, Cupolas, and Belvederes by Jo Cryder

With 470 eye-catching color photos and informative text, readers are taken on a cross-country tour of towers, turrets, cupolas, and belvederes found on homes, churches, and barns dating from the nineteenth through the early twenty-first century. Towers are often landmarks for cities. A tower or turret is particularly eye-catching on a house or business and turns them into a recognizable neighborhood landmark. Cupolas and belvederes are functional embellishments that crown the roof. They offer access to views, add dimension to the exterior, and further serve to bring in light and ventilation. Both quadrilateral and octagonal cupolas and belvederes are displayed. Added to the mix is a beautiful grouping of widow's walks and parapets. Architects and designers will find the range of shapes and adornment on these architectural features both surprising and inspiring.
