About this title

Synopsis:

Ireland's once great houses and castles, designed by the most accomplished architects of their day for the Anglo-Irish aristocracy, bear witness to a troubled history of civil war, famine, and bankruptcy. Splendid in their prime, the ruins have absorbed the romantic beauty and mystery of the surrounding landscape -- qualities brilliantly captured by Simon Marsden's infrared-filtered photographs and Duncan McLaren's vivid text.First published in 1980 but long out of print, In Ruins has now been revised and updated to include eleven new sites and thirty previously unpublished images.

About the Author:

Simon Marsden was an internationally acclaimed photographer of the fantastic and supernatural who turned the photography of buildings and landscapes into his own art form. He lived in an old rectory on the Lincolnshire Wolds with his wife and family. He died in January 2012.
