Description
Victoria and Albert Museum
A charming facsimile edition of the sought-after book from 1938, exploring the sights, character and shops of the British high street. With all 24 of the colour illustrations created for the book by Eric Ravilious (1903-42) and the original text by architectural historian J.M. Richards (1907-92). Highly-collectable, only 2,000 copies of the original book were produced before the original plates were destroyed in the London Blitz. From the cheesemonger and family butcher to the more specialised clerical outfitter, furrier and plumassier, or oyster bar. Celebrating the ‘personal and local character’ of the shops which, even in 1938, were feared to be disappearing. Carefully created to reflect the look and feel of the original; now also including a contextual essay.
