Since its inception in 1897, Country Life magazine has built an unrivaled photographic archive of 20th-century British architecture—one that encompasses a broader range of styles than any other. This archive forms the basis of Alan Powers’ new survey of 20th-century houses, which features 200 color and duotone images from the pages of the magazine. Arranged in chronological chapters, from the 1920s to the 1990s, the book is preceded by an enlightening introductory essay on the changing nature of architectural style over the course of a century. Both town and country houses are included, as well as successful remodelings of earlier buildings, such as London’s glorious Eltham Palace. It is a superb portrait of the beauty and triumph of 20th-century British architecture.
