Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales. Published in conjunction with an exhibition celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Georgian Group.

This exhibition celebrates 80 years of conservation work by the Georgian Group. It aims to transport the visitor into a world of craftsmanship, beauty and design. Gathering together an eclectic selection of traditional 'Georgian' crafts practised in the 21st century, objects range from silk wallpaper and chandeliers to carved stone sculpture and ceiling designs. The works on display demonstrate that the Georgian tradition is a living tradition, and is one that should be supported and preserved. Founded in 1937, the Georgian Group is a conservation organisation created to campaign for the preservation of historic buildings and planned landscapes of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Exhibition: The Georgian Group, London, UK (02.02 - 25.02.2017).
