I have by no means started my summer reading with a short and delightful piece of Chick Lit. It is fiction, yet very historically accurate and set at Salisbury Cathedral built around 1220 in Salisbury, England.
With stunning interior and exterior Gothic arches.
Have you read it?
This will provide me with some opportunities to look at Gothic Architecture and it’s influences on previous and current design and the Gothic Revival Period in the United States. The house below is an example of Carpenter Gothic Architecture. It was built in 1854 by Seth Shaw in Ferndale, CA.
An English Regency Gothic Settee circa 1820.
Pair of 20th century cast iron Gothic lamps.
In the meantime, enjoy the long weekend. I’ll be reading.
