Blue-and-white or multi-coloured, exquisite or bizarre – this superbly illustrated book is the authoritative and comprehensive guide to the 1000s of tin-glazed floor and wall tiles found in London and made in Spain, the Low Countries, Liverpool or the capital itself over the last 400 years.

 A full colour catalogue covers 500+ individual designs, many on tiles in the Museum of London’s collections, including Dutch wall tiles, and there are 20+ colour illustrations of tin-glazed tiles still in London buildings. Methods of manufacture, London pothouses known to have been involved in tile manufacture, and how scientific analysis can determine where particular tiles were made are all discussed.
