Timothy Mowl is an architectural historian and lecturer in the History of Art at Bristol University.
"'A handsome introduction to the world of Jacobean chic.' (Sunday Telegraph) 'It is a marvellous book for two reasons. First, Mowl is that rare thing, an architectural historian who can write. Second, he is a man with a new these who also challenges the orthodox view.' (Financial Times)"
