An excellent informative book, which I am delighted to own. A text book to dip into which is exciting and helpful.

I am not an architect but a student of interior design. The book gave an interesting introduction into the artistic inspiration and processes going on at the period from Morris to Grotius. Personally I loved it.

Nikolaus Pevsner: Pioneers of Modern Design 20 Mar. 2014
By Gunvor Regine Rishovd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an extremely well written and informative book with logically built-up chapters, which makes it easy to find any particular subject you might be looking for.
In my opinion Pevsner was one of the most knowledgeable art historians ever, who was able to express himself in a manner that can be understood even if you don't have an art historical background.
The illustrations are relevant and exceed the usual "stock in trade".

Beautifully written, outdated 17 Feb. 2014
By Vlad Golovach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Any research on design history is incomplete without this book. And, to be frank, not just incomplete but boring, as the majority of books on this field is badly written, unlike this one. Yet it's dated, which is no wonder considering the year of first publication.
