Elizabethan and Jacobean Style

Paperback
From the accession of Elizabeth I in 1558 to the death of James I in 1625, a delayed renaissance swept England, pervading the domestic architecture and interiors of the day and signalling the emergence of a peculiarly English form of architecture. Timothy Mowl explores with erudition the social and cultural history of the time and the way that it is reflected in contemporary furnishings, interiors and architecture. This magnificently illustrated book, with specially commissioned photography, shows the splendour of the architecture of Elizabethan and Jacobean houses in a timelessly absorbing manner.
