This book delves into the roots of the bold yet elegant Mexican style, illustrated with many photographs from Spain and Portugal reflecting the Moorish influence. In addition to coverage of the architecture of the houses, the book shows other spatial and decorative elements, including iron gates and grilles, stairways, and old paintings, combs, ceramics, character figures, and ancient pre-Columbian figurines.

Verna Cook Shipway attended the Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris and Columbia University's School of Architecture.

Warren Shipway received his graduate degree in engineering from Princeton. The Shipways are the authors of six other books on Mexican architecture and furnishings.
