Charles Rennie Mackintosh was the architect of Hill House in Helensburgh which was built in 1902 for the Blackie family.
The dull exterior belies a glorious, mostly white, interior jointly designed by Mackintosh and his wife Margaret MacDonald but you'll have to visit to see that for yourself. The National Trust for Scotland website has some interior photos and details of how you can visit the property.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
