A revised edition of the book, updated with new information, and beautifully redesigned, with many of the prints, previously in black and white, now in colour. Frances Lincoln, the new publishers, have lovingly redesigned the pages and there are exquisite new prints. Apart from anything else, the book is a beautiful object in itself. (Glasgow Herald
This is a beautiful book, one that any art lover will pore over lovingly, and it clarifies the history of an art movement that has long been unfairly sidelined. Whether you choose to dip in and out of the writing and linger, enraptured, over the lush plates, or immerse yourself in full by reading all of the enthralling history of these young men who sought to change the stifling art world of the late nineteenth century, it is an essential buy for anyone who values the visual arts.
