Throughout the ages, doorways have attracted the art of the designer and the skill of the craftsman perhaps more than any other architectural element. In this book, Michael Fewer explores how Ireland’s builders and designers have dealt with the doorway in terms of function, style, composition, components, and materials. He examines 54 doors, ranging from the Seefin cairn at Kilbride, dating from 3000 B.C., to the 18th-century doors of Dublin’s Merrion Square and the contemporary entrance of the National Gallery Millennium Wing.

About the Author:

Michael Fewer is an architect, environmentalist and writer whose published work over the last twenty years has included 14 books on subjects varying from architectural history and travel to walking and nature guides. His most recent books are Walking across Ireland, the story of a walking journey across Ireland at the turn of the millennium and (as co-author with Maurice Craig), The New Neighbourhood of Dublin, a history of the architecture of County Dublin.

Review:

The doorways' contrasting styles make for an oddly compelling subject, for though there isn't an obvious point to this book, it's hard not to be beguiled by the impressive 18th century doors of Knock Abbey in County Louth, or the strange 8th century. --Sunday Telegraph

Book Description Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. We all relate readily to doorways - the possibilities they open up, their romance. The doorway tells us much about a building, its purpose and its occupier; and it has, throughout the ages, attracted the art of the designer and the skill of the craftsman perhaps more than any other architectural element. Michael Fewer takes a relaxed and imaginative look at how the idea of the entrance to a building has been dealt with by the builders, designers and craftsmen of Ireland from the earliest times until the present day. He considers function, style, composition, components and materials, together with design influences. The doors he examines range from the humblest to the most impressive, and from the architecturally significant to the whimsical, from the Seefin cairn at Kilbride, County Wicklow, dating from 3000 BC, to the eighteenth-century doors of Merrion Square, Dublin, and, coming right up to date, the doors of the National Gallery Millennium Wing. Describes and illustrates 54 doorways all over Ireland, from Neolithic times to the present day Provides a unique slant on the colourful history and architecture of Ireland By a knowledgeable and popular author.
