review A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England review Í 3 Suzannah Lipscomb ´ 3 summary Meet the Tudors in this fascinating book about the places where they lived played and worshipped For the armchair traveller or those looking for inspiration for a day out A Visitor's Companion to Tudor England takes you to palaces castles theatres and abbeys to uncover the stories behind Tudor England Suzannah Lipscomb visits over fi This book was personally disappointing as it was not what I hoped it would be Of course that s my fault since I should have been careful in my selection Based on the title big mistake I know I thought it would be a discourse on the daily life of the Englishman living during the Tudor era Well it wasn t any such thing I think I could have overlooked my disappointment and rated this book better if it wasn t for the fact the book is also a disappointment for its intended purpose The author candidly admits that it is a tourist guide for those people interested in touring sites of the Tudor era As the author is a scholar of some merit I will not argue with her selection of sites but what she has done is select primarily buildings constructed in the Tudor style and then discuss these buildings along with any significant paintings that may be inside So this is actually an architectural tour that she has designed and describes My problem with the book is that architecture and art are visual arts and any book attempting to discuss these things reuires generous illustrations The only illustrations in this book are very small thumbnail size drawings at the head of each chapter These help a little but not very much If this book is intended to reach the unschooled tourist then it will fail because no tourist is going to select a guide that isn t lavishly layered with photographs and drawings If an intended purchaser is a student of architecture and art heshe may find the list useful but the text is aimed at the layman and well below their level of interest The book just doesn t accomplish what it intends and thus my rating
