This book is designed as a companion to the author’s book about the association between Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll – “Gardens of a Golden Afternoon”. Lutyens was a humanist who was involved in the lives of all his clients. The houses he built for them express his delight in life in their fusion of enthusiasm and inventive design. This book provides a fascinating insight into the work of this country’s most important architect since Christopher Wren; it will also be an interesting portrait of his clients and the social world of which he was a part.
