Beginning with an overview of Godwin’s life, the book then examines the antiquarian and Japanese sources of his styles. Separate chapters discuss his architectural achievements, from early church restorations to the design of avant-garde house/studios; his contributions to design reform through writings as an architectural journalist; his role as an interior designer and the importance of furniture in his commissions; and the changing nature of the critical attention he received in life and after his death.

E W Godwin has lived in the shadows of architectural history since his death in 1886. Godwin is, in turns, a highly attractive and strangely repulsive character. Born in Bristol in 1833, and immensely ambitious, he displayed a precocious talent for design and a passion for the theatre. This is despite the important role he played in the lives of many eminent Victorian artists (Oscar Wilde, Ellen Terry, William Burges and J M Whistler) and the fact that, for a while, he seemed destined to become one of the major British architects of the nineteenth century. This neglect has now been put right by the publication of an extremely well-produced and illustrated collection of essays.
