HUBERT PRAGNELL    Book Number: 89269    Product format: Paperback

Published in association with the National Trust, revised, updated and expanded in size, this beautiful gallery presents a broad outline of the development of architectural styles and movements in Britain. It covers the following styles: Norman, Transition to Gothic, Gothic Cathedral, Medieval Parish Church, Castle and Medieval Manor House, The Medieval House, Tudor Architecture, The Jacobean House, Inigo Jones, 17th Century Mannerism, Sir Christopher Wren, Baroque Style, Palladian Movement, Advent of Town Planning, New Styles and New Materials, Gothic Survival and Revival, Victorian Gothic, From the Forth Bridge to the Millennium Dome, and The Early 20th Century. Armed with these basics you will spot details from the Saxon period to sweeping Georgian crescents right up to Canary Wharf skyscrapers and the Scottish Parliament Building. Detailed drawings and atmospheric colour photographs illustrate key buildings and architectural features in their historical context, and many of these buildings are in the care of the National Trust. Lavenham Guild Hall is a fine example of late medieval jettied structure, all in black and white and with wooden supports; Belton House in Lincolnshire has a salon dating from 1680 with wood panelling in oak and lime wood by Grinling Gibbons Workshop. The wide moat provides perfect defence and a perfect reflection in the image of Bodiam Castle on page 88. Compact square softback, colour. 320pp.
