IRON, ORNAMENT AND ARCHITECTURE IN VICTORIAN BRITAIN: MYTH AND MODERNITY, EXCESS AND ENCHANTMENT. Paul Dobraszczyk. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 342 pp. with 169 ills. (16 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2013-45817 ISBN 9781472418982 In English.
Publisher's description: In the half century after the building of the Crystal Palace (1851), some architects, engineers, manufacturers and theorists believed that the fusion of iron and ornament would reconcile art and technology and create a new, modern architectural language. This book studies the development of mechanised architectural ornament in iron in nineteenth-century architecture, its reception and theorisation, and the contexts in which it flourished. As such, it offers new ways of understanding the notion of modernity in Victorian architecture.
