This book is one of a pair of books on Kingcombe. It records for posterity the features of the original home of Sir Gordon Russell (1892-1980).
Sir Gordon was multi-talented and highly skilled. He loved working with his hands and experimenting. He was not only passionate about furniture design and an exceptional draughtsman, but also a keen engraver and calligrapher, metalworker and woodworker, all skills he taught himself.
The house today stands as a testimony to Sir Gordon Russell’s passion for and relentless pursuit of good architecture, innovative and experimental workmanship and fine design. This lavishly illustrated book records details of the house.
