Nicholas Hawksmoor was the architect of some of London's most prominent landmarks - St Mary Woolnoth in the City; St George's, Bloomsbury; Christchurch, Spitalfields; and part of Greenwich Hospital - and of other notable English buildings, such as All Souls, Oxford, and the Mausoleum at Castle Howard. Yet he has been comparatively little studied and this title is by the acknowledged authority on his work. The illustrations include photographs of all his surviving buildings, and drawings of those which remained projects or have been demolished, making this a useful introduction to the work of an inventive, highly individual architect.
