An extract from Laurie N. Ede's 'British Film Design':

What do you see when you close your eyes and think of British cinema? Dr. No's Hideaway, or the buffet of Brief Encounter? Vera Drake's parlour, or Hogwarts School? Or a thousand other visions of British films? British Film Design is about these visions and the people behind them - the often forgotten Production Designers and Art Directors, whose efforts tend to go unnoticed by cinema-goers. From the silent era to the part built/part computer generated design of recent years, this is the first comprehensive look at British art direction, and a brand new way of looking at classic British Films.
