Edwardian Civic Buildings and Their Details
Richard Fellows' book explores the many influences on Edwardian architects. New methods and techniques, a mixture of tradition and progress, as well as the influence of the arts and crafts movement are all analysed here in explaining this unique period of design.
'Edwardian Civic Buildings and Their Details' has a strong underlying purpose, an attempt to increase appreciation of the subject and so arrest the decay, decline and possible demolition of some important buildings. Richard Fellows shows how the civic qualities most admired in Edwardian architecture were achieved, in order to encourage those engaged in the process of building design and procurement to recapture the spirit, if not the style, of the years around the turn of the century.
