This book focuses on a series of important London churches designed by the architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (c. 1661–1736), during the early part of the eighteenth century. Although Hawksmoor is recognized as one of the major contributors to the traditions of British and European architectural culture, there is insufficient visual documentation and analysis of his work. This book, featuring the work of architectural photographer Hélène Binet, reconsiders Hawksmoor's architecture in relation to urbanism.
