FOLLIES


FOLLIES

JEFFREY W. WHITELAW    Book Number: 86623    Product format: Paperback

Whether or not a building is a folly, be it a belvedere, grotto, obelisk, pagoda, pavilion, prospect tower, pyramid, deliberately built ruin, sham castle or triumph or arch, depends when and where it was built and why, and even whether it feels like a folly. They are buildings and structures made for pleasure, designed to surprise, often built in unusual places and for reasons that may seem obscure. Many are now National Trust properties and here we can enjoy a gazetteer of colour photographs of some firm favourites like the Red House, Painswick Rococo Gardens, Gloucestershire, The Pepperbox at White Parish, a hexagonal brick tower and where William Morris would holiday, Broadway Tower in Worcestershire. 64 page paperback, glossy colour photos.
