Adam Style by Steven Parissien
Book DescriptionIn the mid-Georgian era, between 1750 and 1785, a delightful form of domestic Neo-Classicism arose that came to be named after the outstanding architect of the period, Robert Adam. This fascinating book takes the reader through typical houses of the time in England and America, showing the way in which they were designed, decorated and furnished. It is packed with meticulous visual details and stunning colour images that conjure up a period, and a style, that has never lost its appeal.

Books By Author Steven Parissien
Comfort of the Past, Hardback (April 2015)
This groundbreaking architectural history examines what people actually wanted in their institutional and private patronage over the last two centuries as opposed to what architects and theorists thought they should want - as seen through the prism of Oxford's principal building contractor and craft practitioner, Symm & Company.
Celebrating Britain, Paperback (March 2015)
Canaletto's time in mid-Georgian Britain has received much scholarly attention in the past, but this book places his work in a broader political and social context, linking his paintings and drawings, as well as those of William Hogarth, with the growing sense of assurance and mission which the British nation was then beginning to display.
