This sumptuously illustrated guide is a magnificent celebration of the museums of the British Isles and their contents, revealing a treasure trove of riches and a unique record of the nation's life and history. Britain has many of the world's best museums and galleries, great and small. Mark Fisher has travelled across Britain, from the West of Ireland to East Anglia, from the Orkneys to St. Ives, to select the best 350: famous and little-known, international and local; collections of fashion; flying machines and fans; ceramics and motorcars; boots, shoes and lasts; great works of art. Richly illustrated and packed with stories about the remarkable men and women who have created, donated and cared for these collections, this is an essential companion for all who love museums, showing the familiar in a new light and introducing readers to many hidden delights they never knew existed.
