Charming chinoiserie

I've always loved Chinoiserie toile and wallpaper, and in a similar vein, I've been reading a great book all about outdoor Chinoiseries, which has beautifully detailed illustrations of follies and pavillions in France from eras long past. They are each unique architectural masterpieces!! The authors and illustrators of this magnificent book, Andrew Zega and Bernd H. Dams, are both architects and historians. The original limited edition of this gorgeous book sold for several thousand dollars, but for us mere mortals, we had to wait for the smaller sized reprint to snag a copy on the cheap.
