This new series will enchant seasoned country house visitors and amaze people new to art and architecture as they read about surprising snippets of history that occurred at, or because of, a country house in England, Scotland, or Wales. Three volumes in total, the first covering the letters A through H, each book will contain fascinating content and beautiful illustrations.

Curt DiCamillo’s series of three high quality hardback books use the alphabet to frame an astonishing variety of material as a backdrop to endless, beguiling stories. Curt’s series of crisp, zesty entries dive into fascinating moments of British cultural history—from tea to bananas, from Canaletto to Agatha Christie, from porcelain to ghosts. The text is an exhilarating whistle stop tour—perfectly pitched for pleasurable sampling that will enchant both newcomers and seasoned visitors to country houses.
