The definitive book on the most influential English country house architect and designer.

This beautifully produced book celebrates the work of Robert Adam, the great 18th century architect who influenced generations by stamping his distinctive neoclassical aesthetic vision inside the English country house.

The luxurious new photograph provides an in-depth visual exploration of Adam’s most important surviving cottages, to which the author and photographer gained unrivaled access. Including magnificent cottages like Syon House and Harewood House, designed and inspired by the neoclassical ideal, as well as Adam’s castle-style Mellerstain and village houses like Home House, all captured in lavish detail. Adam’s original design drawings from the Sir John Soane Museum illustrate the boldness of planning, color, and creative interpretation of Adam’s home interiors. A biographical and contextual description of Adam’s life and work describes his unique design process, his sponsors, and the legacy of his design achievement.

This richly illustrated volume will appeal to homeowners and designers, as well as traditional architecture enthusiasts, and promises to become a significant addition to any architecture and interior design library.
