Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Thankfully, Joan Skinner wrote this book - it's perfect IF you're into architectural history, especially this firm. It's as complete as we're ever likely to see, and well-researched. The photos are small and printed cheaply, but this is understandable given a larger, more expensive book would likely never have made it to market. However, the work of Wallis etc. really is beautiful, and classic design we maybe appreciate now more than ever. Not much mention is made of the famous Abbey Road studios, probably Wallis' most famous (but least-recognised) design, but little exists that we've seen on the subject in the archives. Easily read, and interesting throughout - for those who do care.
