Judith Flanders: The Making of Home
Bestselling author of The Victorian House, A Circle of Sisters, The Victorian City and most recently, The Making of Home, Judith Flanders talks about her books and passion for the Victorian period as author, historian and critic.
The Making of Home is a 500-year story of how, and why, our homes have come to be what they are. The idea that 'home' is a special place, a separate place, a place where we can be our true selves, is so obvious to us today that we barely pause to think about it. But, as Judith Flanders shows in this revealing book, 'home' is a relatively new concept.
As full of fascinating detail as her previous bestsellers, The Making of Home is also a book teeming with original and provocative ideas so it's set to be a fascinating talk in decadent Victorian surroundings.
