Kettle's Yard is a series of cottages in Cambridge restored by Jim Ede as a place to live and as a place to house his collection of twentieth century art. The residence became internationally renowned and is open to students and visitors from around the world. The art includes pieces by David Jones, Christopher Wood, Miro, Winifred Nicholson, Brancusi, Ben Nicholson, Gaudier-Brzeska, Henry Moore, and Lucie Rie. The book's images capture the unique synthesis of art and interior according to Ede's vision.
