The book gives a good representation of architecture through the historical periods. The portraits are of different types of buildings - not only houses, but pubs, colleges and converted agricultural buildings constructed of various materials including timber-frame with flint, handmade bricks as well as mass produced materials. In addition to an explanation of building in each historical period the individual portraits are accompanied by their subjects' own histories telling the story of where, when, why and how each came to be built.
