There is a Classical revival in British architecture, and Quinlan Terry is indisputably its leading figure.  Modern is today in full retreat, and other approaches to building can claim serious notice.  As a result, Terry, who believes in the values of traditional building materials and is convinced of the universal validity of the Classical orders for all kinds of architecture, finds himself with a flourishing practice, the builder of impotant, talked-about buildings, a figure of controversy, the subject of media attention.  Profusely illustrated with photographs and the architects own drawings and linocuts, this book makes the strongest claims for Quinlan’s status as an architect.  Hardback in original dust-jacket.  Near Fine
