    James Barnet was Australia’s most prolific architect, and in the breadth and quality of his work – a Victorian architect without peer.

     

    His transportation of a singular, unflinching vision of neo-classical aesthetic and High-Victorian virtue from London to the colonies has provided a continuing image of urban New South Wales.

     

    Seen from the wheat fields and sheep runs that surround contry towns, or from the winding suburban streets of Sydney, his towers and domes nurture a feeling of personal equanimity, of democratic tradition, that subsequent civic architecture has never achieved.

     

    Introduced by a series of essays, this monograph has stunning black and white photographs of James Barnet’s best known and most loved buildings, accompanied by original drawings and renderings.
