Tiles On The Web
Web site for handmade and historic tiles
About Ernest Allan Batchelder, including all 44 pages of a "Catalogue of Mantle Designs" from the Batchelder-Wilson Co. 1924

There are many excellent books available now to learn more about California and other historic tile. The SOHO Museum Shop carries most titles including the Tile Heritage Foundations digitally-enhanced reproductions of historic tile catalogs. Nicely bound, with card stock covers, these are in most cases reproductions of original catalogs in the Tile Heritage archives and hard to come by outside ordering directly from the foundation. Just a few of the books we carry are:
