This engaging, beautifully illustrated book brings together a selection of highlights from the National Trust’s vast collection. Arranged chronologically, starting with Roman sculpture and ending with 20th-century design, it focuses on museum-quality objects as well as important examples of decorative arts, furniture, textiles and objects with fascinating stories. The highlights – from Cardinal Wolsey’s purse to Rodin’s bust of George Bernard Shaw – are illustrated with exquisite photography and accompanied by illuminating captions. The book also includes a timeline of key moments in the Trust’s history.
