The drawing room : English country house decoration by Jeremy Musson( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A highly detailed look at the most accomplished English country house interiors, exemplifying English decorating at its best. The English drawing room, a formal place within a house of status where family and honored guests could retire from the more public arena, is one of the most important rooms in an English country house, and thus great attention has been paid to preserving the decoration of this most elegant of spaces: the center of life in the English countryside and the epitome of English country house decoration. This book offers privileged access to fifty of the finest drawing rooms of country houses and historic townhouses--many still in private hands--including Althorp, Attingham, and Knepp Castle. Through these sumptuous rooms, readers experience a history of English decorating from the sixteenth century to the present day, including the work of design legends such as David Hicks, Nancy Lancaster, John Fowler, and David Mlinaric. Specially commissioned photographs capture the entirety of each room, as well as details of furniture, architectural elements, artwork, collections, and textiles, creating a visually seductive book that will inspire interior designers and homeowners interested in the widely popular classic English look

Parish church treasures : the nation's greatest art collection by John A. A Goodall( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our parish churches constitute a living patrimony without precise European parallel. Their cultural riches are astonishing, not only for their quality and quantity, but also their diversity and interest. Fine art and architecture here combine unpredictably with the functional, the curious and the naive, from prehistory to the present day, to form an unsung national museum which presents its contents in an everyday setting without curators or formal displays. Because church treasures usually remain in the buildings they were created for, properly interpreted they tell from thousands of local perspectives the history of the nation, its people and their changing religious observance

Leeds by Paul Barker( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following his portraits of Dublin and Liverpool, photographer Paul Barker turns his attention to Leeds, the largest and most important city in West Yorkshire. As a result of the Industrial Revolution, the population of Leeds grew from 10,000 in 1700 to 150,000 by 1840 and it became the centre not only of engineering but also of communications. As a result of its canal and rail connections, at one point nearly half of England's total exports passed through Leeds. Paul Barker's photography explores the city district by district, from the Victoria Quarter, with its opulent shopping arcades between Briggate and Vicar Lane, to the vibrant cultural quarter, which contains the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds College of Music and the Royal Armories Museum. Leeds was voted 'UK's favourite city' by Conde Nast Traveler magazine in 2004, 'Best English city to visit outside of London' in 2005 and 'Visitor city of the year' by the Good Britain Guide in 2005
