Edward Maufe – Architect and Cathedral builder

The first biography of this important 20th Century architect

“The architect Edward Maufe and his wife Prudence, the ‘eye’ behind Heal’s furnishing business, were a power couple in British architecture and design between the wars. Juliet Dunmur has opened up their world with her fascinating biography, the first book to study these important and influential figures.”

Alan Powers, writer, curator and specialist in twentieth century British art and design

“Juliet Dunmur is uniquely placed to provide a delicately drawn yet incisive account of Edward and Prudence Maufe, revealing them as complex yet engaging personalities whose influence on twentieth-century architecture and design was far greater than is commonly supposed.  Such a well-written biography was a pleasure to read.”

Elain Harwood, historian with Historic England specialising in post-war architecture
