Georgian town houses and their details
First published as London: The Art of Georgian Building, this book has been widely acclaimed as a classic study of London's town houses built between 1700 and 1821 - the greatest period of British architecture. Dan Cruickshank's text, combined with numerous photographs and Peter Wyld's superbly executed measured drawings of facades and details, is a unique record of these buildings. Now, this book has been re-issued at £14.99.
