Reviews

"I have admired "The Honeywood File" and "The Honeywood Settlement" .... since I was told about them as an architecture student, and never ceased to feel grateful to the lecturer who introduced them to me."- Leslie Fairweather Praise for "The Honeywood File" "This hilarious 1929 British comedy classic is framed as letters to and from hapless young architect James Spinlove, who is desparately trying to complete construction of a mansion known as Honeywood Grange for the volatile Sir Leslie Brash. The letter-writers include contractors, plumbers, town planners, litigious lawyers, Lady Brash and Hootchcraft, the surveyor of bricks. A narrator (Creswell himself) comments on it all, revealing a great deal of still-oertinent information about house-building."- "Toronto Globe and Mail " " .... recommended to the earnest study of all young architects and all those temerarious enough to desire to build their own houses."- "Burlington Magazine" Priase for "The Honeywood File" " ... full of human nature; and full of useful information lightly conveyed, for everybody concerned with domestic architecture."- Arnold Bennett Praise for "The Honeywood File" "This hilarious 1929 British comedy classic is framed as letters to and from hapless young architect James Spinlove, who is desparately trying to complete construction of a mansion known as Honeywood Grange for the volatile Sir Leslie Brash.
