Huts, Havens and Hideaways
Denbury, Jo
Book Number: 48045
ISBN: 1841722723
Ryland, Peters & Small Ltd February 18, 2002 4to. Hardcover in d/w. Po inscription on half title. 144pp very good. We all dream of a secret hideaway at times. Somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a place to curl up and dream. The ethos behind "Huts, Havens and Hideaways" is just that - sanctuaries. From beach huts beside the sea to treehouses at the bottom of a garden. Desert airstreams to converted railway carriages. All these are encapsulated within the four elements of water, air, fire and earth, each person having their own particular affinity with one of these primal instincts. Jo Denbury brings these dreams to life with this, her first book, accompanied by photographer Chris Tubbs. The enticing photographs are complemented by the inspirational text of Ali Watkinson, all sowing the seeds of fantasies that could one day become true.

Australian Architects: Philip Cox
Dean, John (Editor)
Book Number: 38404
ISBN: 0909724539
Red Hill, ACT Intl Specialized Book Service Inc 1985 4to softcover 95pp colour & b/w illus. very good, owner's names on fep. / very good d/w. Born in Sydney, in 1939, Cox was educated at the University of Sydney, and early in his career, particularly with domestic works, he displayed a sensitivity for the materials and environment of Australia characteristic of designers associated with "the Sydney School" style. After establishing his own firm in 1967 Cox pursued his interest in architectural history with numerous publications to his credit, including Colonial Architecture of Australia (Melbourne, 1978) and Rude TimberBuildings ofAustralia (London, 1969). His work displays the pragmatism and understatement characteristic of much Australian work * Current projects show more dramatic uses of space and less obvious historic overtones. The National Sports Stadium, Canberra (1977) is an example.Australian Architects -Philip Cox is an attractive, slim paperbound volume comprised of several essays about Cox's work augmented by abundant illustrations which survey the architect's major projects. The photographs, some in color, are of good quality, and numerous plans, sections, and elevations should fulfill the demands of users of this kind of book. Appending the text is a useful, comprehensive bibliography of writings by and about Cox. This book should prove to be a valuable resource on a significant contemporary architect.

Life in the English Country Cottage
Book Number: 32125
ISBN: 0297832743
London Weidenfeld 1995 4to hardcover 216pp index, colour & b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. This is a guide to the history, social function and architecture of the English country cottage. Loosely based on Mark Girouard's classic survey, "Life in the English Country House", this look at the development of the English cottage covers three central areas of interest - building, living and working. The building section exanmines the architectural changes dictated by need and fashion from the Middle Ages to the Arts and Crafts movement. The living section looks at the difficulties of family life and stylistic trends according to tase of society. The final section of the book, on working in and around the cottage, examines the various uses to which the cottage was put in its rural context - from baking and brewing to textile outworking. nnBook DescriptionnA splendid illustrated history of the myth and reality of English cottage life over the last seven centuries, with 240 photographs, paintings, and drawings. Now in paperback. Whether Cotswold stone or a harmonious blend of timber-frame and thatch, the English cottage is an enduringly romantic symbol of country life at its most seductive. The ideal of cottage life is one that has tempted writers and artists for the last 200 years, but as this volume reveals, it was not always idyllic. From the medieval village to the 20th century, architectural historian Adrian Tinniswood traces the history of the cottage, exploring how they came to be built, the materials used to build them, and how they evolved. The focus of the book, however, is firmly on people: how cottage dwellers spent their time, what they ate and where they slept, and how they decorated and furnished their homes. A lively portrait, richly presented with 240 illustrations. Adrian Tinniswood is the author of Historic Houses of the National Trust and Country Houses from the Air. 216 pp 9 x 10 1/2 120 color & 120 b/w illustrations --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

New York Rizzoli International 1988 Folio hardcover 360pp index, colour illus. very good / very good, creased & slightly faded d/w. From Library Journal: One of the most remarkable turnabouts in the art communities has been the resurgence of interest in classicism and academicism in every form from avante-garde painting to the design of houses and office buildings. This book puts all of this on the map in the considered style that has made Jencks one of the most sought-after commentators on the contemporary art scene. Whether or not one views this vein of art critically as a specious effluent of Neoconservatism or enthusiastically as Jencks does, as a vital reinterpretation of the Western artistic patrimony, this tome offers an understandable, worldwide survey. It contains over 300 sharp color illustrations.
