Tiles are fascinating, whether seen en masse in the Alhambra or individually in the home. They lend themselves to an extraordinary diversity of treatments, and are compelling to makers and collectors as well as to the layman. Even with the wealth of history, makers are still developing and exploring new techniques that involve art and design.

This book gives an overview of making, decorating and using tiles. It emphasizes the range of methods employed together with the use of graphic imagery particular to our time. Some thirty techniques are illustrated and explained. Tile-making using earthenware, stoneware, porcelain and paper clays is described, combined with the decorative techniques of painting, screenprinting, sgraffito and many others.

The work of leading tile designers is reviewed, with details of their approaches and applications. Practical information is also given: uses for tiles including walls, floors, roofs, fireplaces and stoves; details on how to fix tiles, ranging from murals to swimming pools; and advice on how to protect work from threats such as frost, movement and vandals.

Written by a distinguished tile designer and maker, and with over 300 lavish illustrations, The Tile is sure to captivate everyone interested in learning and appreciating the skills of this beautiful ceramic form.
