dc.description.abstract"Creating a Gothic Paradise" takes the form of a series of essays and exhaustive and extensively illustrated catalogue entries. An introduction to the subject by Pugin scholar Rosemary Hill is followed by several essays by Andrews covering all aspects of Pugin's Australian work. For Puginists, it is a pity that there is no appendix listing the location of extant Pugin buildings and objects in Australia. This information is not always easy to extract from the text. Another not insignificant point is that it is not always clear from the image captions who was the architect of a particular church. These reservations notwithstanding, "Creating a Gothic Paradise" is a most valuable and attractive contribution to nineteenth-century design history in Australia.en
