Synopsis:

A city is the greatest of the works of art; written on its walls are the tradition and the history of the past, outlined in its composition is the imprint of the human soul - Liverpool is lucky. Through its highs and lows, it has emerged with a fabulous architectural legacy preserved in situ: 2,500 listed properties, including 26 Grade I, more than any other city outside London. A century ago it staged a high-profile conference entitled City Beautiful that debated how architecture affected its appearance to natives and visitors alike. With its 800th birthday in 2007 comes a flourish of bold new buildings to complement a plethora of neo-classical, Victorian Gothic and Art Deco landmarks which enjoy World Heritage Site status. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates the big picture and little details that give Liverpool its unique grandeur. From dignified offices, noble banks and mighty warehouses to merchant palaces, sublime churches and handsome parklands, accompanied by an embarrassment of sculptural decoration invariably with a maritime theme. This is Liverpool: The City Beautiful.
