Fabulous large format first printing of the world first edition hardback, in a protected jacket. Marvellous illustrations. This book inspires anyone with an eye to see. It brings out the property lust too! Only one tiny fault stops this from being 'As New', and that is a tasteful and very discrete blind stamp on the front end paper and the spine of the jacket is slightly sunned. A standard reference for all who appreciate great architects, this is one of Phaidon's most cherishible issues. A large and heavy book, as befits this fascinating creative genius.

Über diesen Titel


Originally published in 1995 by Phaidon Press, this is a study of the life and works of British architect C.F.A.Voysey. Extensively illustrated with details of all his architecture and selected designs for furniture and fabrics.

From Publishers Weekly:

An influential architect and designer in Britain's Arts and Crafts movement, Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941) is best known for his white, roughcast houses with green slate roofs, models of economy, clarity, the use of natural materials and the harmony of a building and its surroundings. In this impressive, beautifully illustrated monograph, London-based architectural historian Hitchmough scrutinizes the English architect's cottages and grand houses; designs for offices, a factory, a school, a village hall; as well as his curvilinear furniture, metalwork and fresh, charming wallpapers, fabrics and textiles. Translating the critical philosophy of John Ruskin into simple, practical statements, Voysey invented a housing type at once fashionable, rooted in tradition and progressive in its insistence that all elements in the makeup of a dwelling be integrally linked. Hitchmough appraises the legacy of an individualist who, though he scorned modern architecture as ``false originality,'' has been hailed as a precursor of the modernist movement.
