The work of the English architect Francis Johnson spanned the twentieth century. This book covers the whole of his life and architectural career and is essential for anyone interested in Johnson's work. It was part-funded by subscribers and accompanied an associated exhibition in York and London. The book is generously illustrated and covers Johnson's new classical country houses, churches, smaller houses, his designs for furniture and church fittings, as well as his restoration work. Included are a select gazetteer of Johnson's projects and designs, a catalogue of architectural books in his library and a bibliography.
