To the average Joe, a building is a building; but to an architecture spotter, a building is much more. It's a post-modern masterpiece, an Edwardian edifice, an art deco domain, a prairie-style palace. In the Architecture Styles Spotter's Guide, enthusiasts will discover a wealth of information covering everything from rustic log homes to soaring skyscrapers. Included are the following features.

* Architecture spotters will enjoy navigating the book as they hunt for buildings that epitomize great design, and styles that capture their imagination.

* Notable buildings and architecture styles are discussed in great detail, accompanied by plenty of beautiful photographs.

* An illustrated glossary of architectural terms like cornices, flying buttresses, parapets, and gables is provided.
