Architectural History of the British Isles

Series Editor: Dr Tim Brittain-Catlin, University of Kent

Lund Humphries is delighted to announce the launch of its new series Architectural History of the British Isles. British architectural history has a very prominent reputation internationally and sets the standard for publishing and for the development of new ideas and narratives in the field. Covering all periods of architectural history, the series will consist of accessible and authoritative studies of specific periods, styles, architects and types of building, and will provide fresh insights into fascinating subjects with perpetual appeal. The series will not be comprehensive in terms of its selection, but will offer the best scholarship in this field, reflecting the richness and quality of British architecture. We will be highly selective and expect only to publish a couple of titles each year.

The books will present illustrated scholarship in an attractively designed format with high production values, and authors will be required to raise funds to support the costs of illustrations.

The series will be overseen by an academic Editorial Board drawn from the United Kingdom and Ireland’s leading scholars in the major universities (or with unequalled expertise in writing and publishing). Series Editor Timothy Brittain-Catlin will chair the Editorial Board. Manuscripts will be submitted to an independent peer review process that meets international academic expectations.
