The Gothic revival began in the early years of Victorias reign. It quickly became the dominant form of building. New and exciting, it reflected Britains growing stature and a confidence in the countrys past and her future direction.
Gothic style transformed the urban landscape from the mid 19th century. In this new book, discover how leading architects reinterpreted Medieval buildings to create a dynamic style which spread from Victorian England to the other side of the Atlantic. In this full colour illustrated guide the author uses his own drawings and photographs to show the reader some of the leading buildings of the time, and explain how to identify the style on more ordinary houses and how to recognise the details inside and out which characterise it. Trevor Yorke is a hugely popular artist and writer about architectural themes. His books include British Architectural Styles; Georgian & Regency Houses Explained , and Art Deco House Styles.
