Lecoq
Brand new in 2005! From grilles and gates to balconies and complex lock and key mechanisms, this book traces the successive styles of decorative French ironwork over its 700-year development. The authoritative work on traditional French architectural ironwork designs, from Romanesque to the Empire, the book's masterly black-and-white illustrations and concise explanations reveal the complex fabrication techniques and myriad elaborate foliate motifs employed by French craftsmen. The late Raymond Lecoq, a Frenchman, wrote extensively on ironwork and locksmithing. Richard J. Wattenmaker is director of the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art.
