My Works

Victorian Splendor, Recreating America’s 19th Century Interiors
In a manner as lavish and evocative as the era itself, Leopold discusses the human factors and historic significance of each room, and in doing so, brings the many elements of the Victorian interior into focus, to be enjoyed and appreciated today.

Labyrinthos Award: Excellence of Research, New York University/SEHNAP.

The Victorian Garden
An enchanting guide to the history of horticulture’s golden age, the 19th century garden.

Winner, 1996 Quill & Trowel Award; American Graphic Award for Excellence in Communication and Design. Cited by The New York Times for “style and substance, one of the best gift books of the year.”

Cherished Objects, Living With and Collecting Victoriana
The warm appeal of Victorian antiques conveyed with a vivid sense of American domestic history.
