Book Description

10 April 2002
Now in paperback, here is the definitive, definitely inspiring work for homeowners and designers alike. Author Jill Herbers surveys the use of tile in such conventional settings as kitchens and baths, then ventures into less traditional locations like living rooms, foyers, staircases, and home offices. Outdoors, tiles are both beautiful and functional in courtyards, fountains, gardens, and on exterior walls. Breathtaking full-colour photographs showcase this beautiful and versatile craft. Herbers explores the use of tiles through history and as art, culture, and style, examining such topics as terra-cotta, the secret life of glazes, showroom survival, and tiling on a budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on Tile You Can Buy 22 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book has it all--tile in art, history, and all the cultures of the world; tile in living rooms, entryways, backyards, and around picture frames; everything on mosaics, glazes, and tilemaking; how to choose it and use it; where to find it. If you didn't love tile before you saw this book, you will. The book is also the most beautiful--it is itself a work of art. The information is fascinating, the writing entertaining. The 40-page resource section is invaluable. I've seen all the books on tile--if you get only one book, make sure it's this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous full-color book about tiles and their uses 11 May 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Enhanced with the photography of Roy Wright, Tile is a gorgeous full-color book about tiles and their uses for both practicality and art throughout the centuries. From ancient tiles to the immense modern variety and applications of tiles in kitchens, bathrooms, walls, and outdoor ceramics today, Tile contains just about everything there is to know about the art and wonder of tiles. A fine reference work by architectural writer and interior design expert Jill Herbers and enthusiastically recommended for personal, professional, academic, and community library collections, Tile will make any reader reconsider the beauty and wonder of a seemingly ordinary part of interior design.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK 25 Nov 2012

It is NOT a how to book if you are looking for how to make tiles.
it is a great compilation of tiles made with different techniques.
STYLES are also presented with wonderful photos of iconic places in the world.
CUERDA SECA, very difficult to find bibliography on, is dealt with at length.
But here again, do not expect to be taught how to work with cuerda seca.
The book is a great photo gallery of TILE, as the title reads. I love it and go back to it for inspiration
