Sir Edward Lutyens became the best known British architect of the early part of the 20th century. This book embodies the quintessence of the man and his work; the variety of style and design seen in the houses featured brings together in one volume the many strands of Lutyen's fertile mind. Complementary to the work of the architect is Lawrence Weaver's leisurely 'saunter' round the houses and gardens - an effect created by the use of many detailed and cleverly composed photographs.
