This practical guide by interior design expert, Barty Phillips, will focus on lighting from Victorian times onwards with examples of what you can have in your own home, as well as a social history and the reasoning behind the shapes and colours used in each era. The book will be divided into eras (Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, war-time, post-war and Modernism, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s) highlighting the styles in each era. It covers ceiling and wall lights, plus table lamps and floor lamps – these can range from Art Nouveau lights to 1930s chrome helicopters and favrile glass Tiffany lights. Barty offers practical advice on what to spot when buying including how to spot fakes, essential accessories plus practical advice on the safe hanging of lights. This essential book finishes with advice on cleaning, a glossary of terms and a directory of vintage lighting specialists.

Designed for collectors of old lighting, the first chapter delves into the early history of lighting, followed by a couple of chapters covering on periods and styles and modern lighting. Materials and manufacturers are discussed, with a section devoted to practical tips on buying, safety, fitting, antique and repro, maintenance, and cleaning.
There is also a helpful glossary.
