ornamentation is a crime,
This review is from: The Uses of Decoration: Essays in the Architectural Everyday (Paperback)
This book is not very good. It doesn't really deal with the main issue of the title, i.e. how decoration is used as a component of architecture! I would skip this book, save your money and invest in Ruskin and Pugin, or perhaps even Pevsner or Betjeman.
