"What a pleasure it is to have an architecture so beautifully naturalized-to site, to purpose, and to tradition."

-Robert A. M. Stern, from the Foreword

"Opening the cover of this book is to discover architects highly sensitive to the character of a place. Whether being inspired by Shingle Style traditions for Rocksyde, Gothic Revival traditions for Six Gables, or Japanese, Grecian or Modern traditions in other designs, the firm manages to skillfully create houses that feel distinctly suited to their particular place. AR&T's attention to materials and ability to subtly adjust house and site to fit one another reinforce the sense of place present in each house."

-Christine G.H. Franck, in Period Homes

"This book is a new classic: beautiful and intelligent. The work of Albert, Righter & Tittmann pulls off the nifty trick of being strong, elegant, and charming; their whimsical flights of fancy are grounded in refined, traditional sensibility. This book is a useful resource not only for people building their dream houses, but for architects who want to study the work of masters."

-Dominique Browning, author of Around the House and in the Garden

"Albert, Righter & Tittmann's work is impeccable on all counts. The civilized pleasures of these houses are deep and authentic and, to me, irresistible."

-Kurt Andersen, journalist and author of Turn of the Century, Heyday, and Reset

"Brew a hearty cup of tea, sit down by the fire, and waltz through the pages of Albert, Righter & Tittmann's magnificent portfolio of work. New Classic American Houses is an architectural page-turner brimming with creative interpretations of traditional forms. AR&T's four decades devoted to mastering the art of the new old house shines through designs that are intoxicating. This classically crafted monograph will be an elegant addition to any traditionalist's library."
