The Lamp of Memory

by John Ruskin - £4.99  Penguin Books (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141036670 | ISBN 10: 0141036672

Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them.

Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilisation and helped make us who we are.

John Ruskin overturned Victorian society's ideas about art and architecture, arguing that ancient buildings must be conserved for their deep, mystical links with the past and that creative design is essential -not for financial gain, but to communicate eternal human truths.
