Tiles are fascinating – they lend themselves to an extraordinary diversity of treatments, and are compelling to makers, collectors and the layman.

This book gives an overview of making, decorating and using tiles. Some thirty techniques are illustrated and explained using earthenware, stoneware, porcelain and paper clays combined with decorative techniques of painting, screenprinting and sgraffito.

Practical information is also given on 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 from frost and movement.

With over 300 lavish illustrations, The Tile will captivate everyone interested in learning the skills of this beautiful ceramic form.
