Product description

Review

‘This is a truly stupendous achievement. Thurley […] is one of the best architectural historians alive in the world – a real scholar. [The book] is an instant classic. Every household should have one […] This is a beautiful object, crammed with superb colour photographs and ground plans and elevations.’ A. N. Wilson, Evening Standard

‘This is an impressive book – for its scholarship, for its easy didacticism, for the care with which Thurley has thought things through, and for its inclusiveness. “A bicycle shed is a building; Lincoln Cathedral is a piece of architecture,” said the great architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner: Thurley shows that both have a story to tell.’ The Sunday Times

Praise for Simon Thurley’s previous books:

‘The rarest of things – a coffee table book that is also supremely engaging to read.’ Bill Bryson, The Times

'[A] stupendous new work of scholarship … it makes the history complete’ Clive Aslet, Country Life

‘The text is engagingly written, authoritative and lavishly produced – a revelation and a delight.’ Country Life

‘A rich evocation’ History Today
