Organ Case Design - Its History And Recent Development
By John Norman
Out of Stock
In the last 40 years, the revival of interest in organ case design has almost equalled the glorious flourishing of the art in the late seventeenth century. This recent development in which the battle between Modernism and Tradition remains quite unresolved is fully assessed in John Norman s comprehensive historical survey. Lavishly illustrated, the volume features 250 photographs and line drawings, in colour and black and white.
