Fun to look through and mentally design the dream estate of my retirement years...and to learn about a lot of architects I'd never heard of.
Beautifully photographed and printed, I ordered 10 copies of this coffee table book for holiday gifts.
It covers most periods and is eclectic in terms of style and the cultural heritage of the buildings. It also manages to present a huge time span of works, though the focus is on the boom years of architectural styles and changes (from the Victorian era onwards).
Inspires plans for lots of day trips for culture vultures or indeed travels abroad. Very interesting, I imagine there was not quite the struggle to overcome snobberies with this book as there must have been with this books family members, Art, Modern Art, Fashion and Photography.
