Description

Visitors to Glasgow in search of Mackintosh's buildings will have little difficulty in finding the School of Art, or even The Hill House at Helensburgh. But where are the tea rooms, the Art Club, the Daily Record building, Ruchill Church Hall? And outside Glasgow, where is Auchenibert, Windyhill, all of the gravestones? This guide will lead you to them, with access details and a commentary on each entry by Roger Billcliffe, author of several standard works on Mackintosh. Each entry is accompanied by recent or contemporary photographs, full addresses and directions and, for those difficult to find commissions, a full GPS location. Mackintosh is not just about Glasgow and this book covers all the surviving sites, from East Wemyss in Fife through to Argyll in the west, Comrie in Perthshire and Mackintosh’s few English commissions in Northampton, London and Sussex. An indispensable addition to the Mackintosh literature.

The author

Roger Billcliffe was formerly a lecturer at Glasgow University, Assistant Keeper of the University Art Collection, and subsequently Keeper of Fine Art at Glasgow Art Gallery, and then Director of The Fine Art Society. He now owns and runs the Roger Bilcliffe Gallery in Glasgow.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
