LIBRARY ADDITION WITH SURPRISE
The latest addition to the practice’s library is an 8-volume compendium of all aspects of woodwork, covering everything from design to structure & furniture, in 1904.
The covers are designed by Talwin Morris who was significant part of Charles Rennie Macintosh’s circle and designed a great many book covers for Walter Blackie, Macintosh’s client for Hill House at that date.
Inside the back cover of Volume 5 was the previous owner’s tax return for 1966, other correspondence and fine portrait.
