Pugin’s writings, was a hugely successful and prolific architect, thanks to whose expertise many of our great cathedrals still stand. Gavin Stamp’s beautifully illustrated book begins to fill a huge gap. What is needed now is a comprehensive life and work of Scott, whose funeral in Westminster Abbey was the grandest ever accorded to any British architect.

George Gilbert Scott. Excerpt from book: under his own ch.rge, and to superintend me in studies having a tendency in that direction. I accordingly took up my residence at Latimer's, in 1826. I had, two years before, made a trip to London, where my eyes were opened to much which I had never thought of before

This book offers a brilliant overview of Scott's achievements. The pictures, accompanied by discursive captions, are beautifully chosen.
