Why We Love This

Written by John Betjeman. Published by Anthony Blond, London, 1970. As described by Christopher de Lotbinière Rare Books: "First Edition thus. First issued in 1933, this diatribe against the rise and fall of good taste in architecture styles that extends to nine feet. Betjeman is very funny about his own youthful prejudices, but underneath is a grim warning about the ugliness of the modern age. Hardcover in wonderful pink and black! 112 pages with pull-out illustrations."

About Lynn Goldfinger-Abram

In 1995, San Francisco antiques enthusiast Lynn Goldfinger launched a successful business sharing her passion for unique vintage items with an international clientele. Her appreciation for the eclectic and unique has fed Paris Hotel Boutique’s substantial, carefully edited catalogue of antique curiosities, European furnishings, vintage hotel silver, jewelry, lighting, first-edition books, and one-of-a-kind accessories. Each well-preserved piece, from the late 1800s through the mid-20th century, reflects the style and elegance of another time and place.
