Hebden Bridge : a sense of belonging by Paul Barker( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nestling in its narrow Pennine valley at the Brontë end of Yorkshire, Hebden Bridge is an enigma. Over the twentieth century, this small town's industrial roots slowly dried up. But then, from the 1970s onwards, it was colonised by waves of artists, bohemians, New Age enthusiasts, media types and an increasingly affluent, left-leaning population. What makes Hebden Bridge so special? [Barker's] portrayal mixes personal and family memories with interviews, investigation and criticism"--Book jacket
Robert Adam : country house design, decoration, & the art of elegance by Jeremy Musson( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully produced book celebrates the work of Robert Adam, the great eighteenth-century architect who influenced generations by stamping his distinctive neoclassical aesthetic vision on the English country house interior. Lavish new photography provides a deeply visual exploration of Adam's most important surviving country houses, to which the author and photographer gained unparalleled access. Included are magnificent country houses such as Syon House and Harewood House styled and inspired by the ideal of the neoclassical, as well as Adam's castle-style Mellerstain and town houses such as Home House, all captured in splendid detail. Original Adam design drawings, from Sir John Soane's Museum, illustrate the boldness of planning, colour, and creative interpretation of Adam's domestic interiors. A biographical and contextual account of Adam's life and work describes his unique design process, his patrons, and the legacy of his design achievement. This richly illustrated volume will appeal to designers and homeowners as well as traditional architecture enthusiasts, promising to become an important addition to any architecture and interior design library." -- Provided by publisher

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring breathtaking photographs of some of Scotland's most remarkable and little-known houses, this book tells the story of how incomers adopted the North of Scotland as a recreational paradise and left an astonishing legacy of architecture and decoration inspired by the romanticized image of the Highlands. Known as shooting lodges because they were designed principally to accommodate the parties of guests that flocked north for the annual sporting season, these houses range from Picturesque cottages ornés and Scotch Baronial castles to Arts and Crafts mansions and modern eco-lodges. While their designs respond to some of Britain's wildest and most stirring landscapes, inside many were equipped with the latest domestic technology and boasted opulent decoration and furnishings from the smartest London and Parisian firms. A good number survive little altered in their original state, and some are still owned by descendants of the families that built them"--

Right on cue, a row breaks out in an obscure London restaurant. Suddenly the man at the heart of the vociferous argument is bundled out into a car-and vanishes. He's been kidnapped.

The wealthy, mysterious Mrs Diana Chan commissions Taylor to break the case. Her beautiful blonde daughter, Helen, is married to the missing man. No ransom note is received. Why not?
