Professor Eric Fernie is Director of the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London.Review:
`marvellous production ... Everyone with an interest in old buildings should read this book' David W Lloyd, SPAB News (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings)
`This is one of the most important books on English medieval buildings to have been published for a very long time.' David W Lloyd, SPAB News (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings)
`a thought-provoking and comprehensive survey of a major architectural programme. It also contains unexpected gems. Tucked away in an appendix, under the modest title "Methods", is a discussion of the methodological problems of modern architectural history that any student of the subject would do well to read.' Simon Pepper, Times Literary Supplement
`stimulating reading' Simon Pepper, Times Literary Supplement
`The great strength of Eric Fernie's approach in The Architecture of Norman England, is his ability to place English and French architecture of the period in the wider context of the European Romanesque, and to identify the social and political agendas at work in the rebuilding which shortly followed the Conquest.' Simon Pepper, Times Literary Supplement
`Eric Fernie's The Architecture of Norman England. Its coffee-table format and rich use of illustrations must not mislead potential readers into thinking it is nothing but a picture book: far from it. This is a serious work of scholarship written by the Director of the Courtauld Institute of Art ... the first such serious survey for almost seventy years.' Joan Bridgman, Contemporary Review, March 2001.
Authoritative, thought-provoking and succinctly written, it will be essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the field and will serve as grist for much debate and further discovery
`It is generously produced and thoroughly illustrated.' John Goodall, Country Life
