astragal three of a kind by 'Mayo'

  • Comment

Three Adolfs linked last week's images, identified by Colin Glover of Glasgow who wins the champagne. The buildings were the Fagus factory was by Gropius and Adolf Meyer; the bank in Alzate Brianza is by Adolfo Natalini; and the Steiner House is of course by Adolf Loos. Answers to this week's quiz should reach us by Monday am. Send answers on a postcard (the more surreal the better) to: AJ Astragal, 151 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1R 4GB.

Pictured at left is a glimpse of life chez William Morris. Centrepiece of the bedroom at Kelmscott Manor was a seventeenth-century carved oak four-poster bed. Daughter May embroidered the hangings while Morris himself composed the verse that embellishes the pelmet. The photograph is from William Morris by Charlotte and Peter Fiell (Taschen, £16.99).
