Art in Living Craftsmenship

Founded in 1937, the Georgian Group is an English and Welsh conservation organization that was created to campaign for the preservation of historic buildings and landscapes of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Originally part of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the group counted among its early members poet John Betjeman and architectural writer (and famed diarist) James Lees-Milne, while it also attracted the interest over the years of Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford.

​This book celebrates eighty years of the Georgian Group, transporting readers into a breathtaking world of craftsmanship, beauty, and design. Bringing together an eclectic selection of traditional Georgian crafts that are still being practiced today, it offers stunning images of silk wallpapers, chandeliers, stone sculptures, and ceiling designs. The Georgian tradition, we see here, remains alive—and should be supported and preserved.
