Editorial Reviews

An examination of the most prolific and decorative housebuilding period in British history. The first part of the volume looks at Edwardian society and the general background to the design of the houses, and the ways in which people originally decorated and lived in them. The enormous range of decorative fittings available, and the cultural, technical, and economic reasons behind the design choices that were made are then discussed in detail. All aspects of the interior are described and illustrated (25 color plates, numerous b&w figures). Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
