Covering over 200 years of Egyptian-inspired architecture and interior design in England, this richly illustrated volume combines a series of essays on the Egyptological background and topics including cinemas, freemasonry and hieroglyphs, with an illustrated guide to surviving examples of Egyptian style in England. An enormous variety of buildings and monuments are covered - from mausolea to textile mills, stately homes to cinemas - with details of where they are and the stories behind their creation.
