There are many hundreds of books about British architecture but very few about Canterbury architecture.  We have found the following, in each category, particularly helpful:

 

General guides on architectural terms

 

Bradley, Simon, Churches - Pesvner Introductions - Churches an Architectural Guide (Yale, 2016)

Lever, Jill and Harris, John, Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture (faber and faber, 1993)

Pevsner, Nikolaus, Pevsner's Architectural Glossary (Yale, 2010)

Sharpe, Geoffrey R, Historic English Churches (Tauris, 2011)

White, Antony and Robertson, Bruce, Architecture and Ornament - A visual Guide (Studio Vista, 1990)

 

Guides to Canterbury architecture

 

Cantacuzino, Sherban and others, Canterbury (Studio Vista, 1970)

Newman, John, The Buildings of England - Kent North-East and East (2013 2nd edition)

Scoffham, Stephen, Houses in Canterbury (Canterbury Urban Studies Centre, 1993)

 

We have also consulted two useful large websites maintained by Historic England, the first on listed buildings, and the second on related images (formerly Images of England):
