Large illustrated guide to the Mackintosh House with text by Senior Curator and Professor Mackintosh Studies Pamela Robertson.

The Hunterian houses the major holding of the work of the internationally acclaimed Scottish architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). It also contains an important group of work by his wife, the designer and artist, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (1864-1933). The Hunterian's unrivalled Mackintosh Collection is founded on the artists' Estate and the conents of their Glasgow house at 6 Florentine Terrace.

This publication tells the story of the Florentine Terrace house, both as a work of art created out of an ordinary end-of-terrace property, and as the home, from 1906-1914, of this remarkable couple. The later story is also told, of the reconstruction of its principal interiors as The Mackintosh House within the Hunterian Art Gallery.

The text is richly illustrated with photography specially commissioned from Michael Kuzma, Glasgow.
