Fenn, Amor
Design and Tradition: A Short Account of the Principles and Historic Development of Architecture and Its Applied Arts
Chapman and Hall, Ltd., 1920
xx+376 pp., numerous b&w line illustrations and diagrams

Keywords:
patterns, spirals, polygons, polyhedra, geometry in art-music-architecture, houses of worship, vernacular architecture, religion, myth, religious iconography, ancient, medieval, renaissance, Egypt, Europe, Greece, Rome

Comment:
A beautifully illustrated style-classification and parts-list on Western architecture, surface ornament, and related craftwork. Like his contemporary A. H. Christie (and all art historians prior to Jay Hambidge), Fenn follows Vitruvius' rules of proportion, treats every geometric pattern as the product of static symmetry, and views now-obvious examples of dynamically symmetrical construction as freehand aesthetic design. Still, this is a lovely introduction to architecture, and it is made doubly useful by extensive exegesis on decorative applications of mythic symbolism and religious iconography for the working architect.
