Both agreeable to read and practical to use, this is an indispensable, easy-reference guide, fully illustrated throughout by the author. The comprehensive introduction traces the development of the English interior, from the fortified medieval house of AD 1300 to the streamlined modern apartment of the present day, and describes the social and political, artistic and technological factors which influenced and shaped its history. Sixteen characteristic, all-of-a-period room settings illustrate the historical account.Biografía del autor:
