From grilles and gates to balconies, balustrades, railings, and complex lock-and-key mechanisms, this book is a treasury of traditional French architectural ironwork designs. While walking the streets of various cities, Raymond Lecoq (1913-71) systematically documented choice examples of the art form with his line drawings, eventually compiling more than 9,000 examples. In this comprehensive inventory, Lecoq traces the 700-year history of wrought ironwork in France, with more than 100 of his elegant yet precise drawings supplementing the text.
