The English Country House
Maybe you have an intellectual interest in architecture and history. Maybe you like to fantasize about living in a spectacular manor house in the English countryside. Either way, you will love The English Country House! This gorgeous book takes a look at the architecture and interiors of sixty-two stunning houses in a range of architectural styles spanning seven centuries—from the medieval Stokesay Castle to the newly built, Lutyens-inspired Corfe Farm—brought to life through the world-renowned photography library of Country Life. More than four hundred color and black and white illustrations provide an insight into the architecture, decoration, gardens, and landscape settings of these houses, which are set into their architectural and historical context by the accompanying text and extended captions. This book makes a beautiful gift and a great coffee table book. Or - what the heck - cut out pictures of yourself, tape yourself into the front yard of your favorite house and get to manifesting!
