A propos de cet article

Paper Wraps. Fine/No Jacket. 5 x 7". Minimal scuffs and creases to wraps, light foxing to endpapers, else as new. Portmeirion is a private village in North Wales that was created in 1926 by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis (1883-1984) using a combination of rescued architectural follies and specially designed buildings which provide a fascinating mix of architectural styles, plus gardens and statues. It has been used as a film location for many movies and TV shows, most notably the 1960s series The Prisoner. In this 52-page booklet, Williams-Ellis describes his inspiration for undertaking the project and gives details of how he went about it. There is also an essay by Lewis Mumford, reprinted from The New Yorker, and an article reprinted from Horizon Magazine by James Morris (later reincarnated as Jan Morris). Illustrated with both color and B&W photos and with endpaper maps.This booklet is undated, but it mentions Williams-Ellis's book on Portmeirion, which was published in 1963. Williams-Ellis, who was 90 when the village was completed, was an early preservationist and creator of the Council for the Protection of Rural England and the Council for the Protection of Rural Wales. His daughter Susan and her husband later started the Portmeirion Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. A fascinating tale. Size: 5 x 7". N° de réf. du libraire 000325
