Copiously illustrated with rarely seen photographs and reproductions of his graphic work and correspondence, this is the first definitive study of Moholy-Nagy’s highly productive time in Britain. The book highlights his collaborations and friendships with architects, both British and fellow emigrés, such as Maxwell Fry and Walter Gropius, and other leading cultural figures, such as John Betjeman and Herbert Read.

Lund Humphries

The first new comprehensive introduction to Edwardian domestic architecture in over 40 years, including a fresh look at not just country houses, but cottages, seaside villas, golf dormy houses, the first barn conversions and suburban villas. It is a considered analysis of Edwardian domestic architecture in its broader context which includes Edwardian political thought and contemporary children’s and other literature, and a new approach to the history of conservation in Britain. The book includes specially commissioned, high-quality photography by Robin Forster which presents a canon of significant houses as well as reproductions of historic drawings.
