Ethel B. Power compiled this wonderful selection of home designs in 1927. She selected works by the era's most notable architects, including Dwight James Baum, Wallace Frost, John F. Staub, Wallace Neff, George Washington Smith, Eleanor Raymond, and Henry Atherton Frost. The house styles include Classic Colonial, Spanish Revival, Creole, and Storybook Style. Each of the delightfully diverse homes includes a floor plan, photography that presents the home's overall profile, as well as landscaping and interior shots. Power focused on built-in features that personalized these homes while maximizing the homeowner's ability to enjoy every detail. This book is every bit as relevant for today's home designer, architect, and builder.

About Author

Ethel B. Power was editor of "House Beautiful" magazine in 1927, and thus one of the most powerful voices in style for the American home. Handpicking "small" gems created by the time's leading architects, Power wrote that studying house plans was to her "as enjoyable a game as playing house to children."
