The Royal Commission’s latest work Herbert Luck North: Arts and Crafts Architecture for Wales written by Adam Voelcker, was launched at the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) conference held at the St George hotel in Llandudno on Friday June 17. The previous evening delegates from the conference were taken on a guided tour by the author of some of the distinctive houses that North designed in Llanfairfechan, including his home, Wern Isaf, where he lived from 1901 until his death in 1940. The book covers all aspects of North’s life and career and is profusely illustrated with original plans, designs, photographs and other archive material and also contains a gazetteer of the buildings North designed, including many that never got built. The National Monuments Record of Wales holds many of his original drawings and plans which can be viewed at our reading room in Aberystwyth.
