Anyone who has wondered how a headstop relates to a hoodmould or what a squich looks like will find their understanding and enjoyment of architecture enhanced by knowledge of its components, styles, and ornament. This clear and practical primer to looking at all the elements of buildings will enliven any architectural exploration.
