By Peter Richmond
Architect, teacher, journalist, town planner and cultural entrepreneur, Sir Charles Reilly (187461948) was a leading figure of the early twentieth-century British architectural scene. Marketing Modernisms is the first book to take an in-depth look at Reilly2s career, tracing his evolving architectural ethos via a series of case studies of his built work. Among other issues, the author considers Reilly2s involvement in cultural enterprises such as the establishment of the Liverpool Repertory Theatre, his journalism, transatlantic links and town-planning theories. Reilly has been largely overlooked by writers of Modernist histories, but this book restores him to deserved prominence.
