Bell: The Life and Work of Guilford Bell, architect 19121992 is the most comprehensive reflection on the life and career of one of Australias most prolific and enigmatic architects. Produced over several months of research that involved a bus tour to Bell-designed buildings in various city and rural areas, Bell features essays by Jeffrey Smart, Conrad Hamann, Alex Selenitsch, Philip Goad, Allan Powell, Harriet Edquist, Anne T.

Pettus & Garth Paterson, Norman Day, Sheila Nash, Neil Clerehan, Kerstin Thompson, Alex Lawlor and editor Leon van Schaik. Described by Schaik as carefully crafted theatres of humanism that grow on their inhabitants over time, Guilford Bells buildings are attentively considered in this landmark publication. Bell features rich full-colour photography by artist Fiona Macdonald as well as architectural plans and drawings which, alongside the textual analyses, provide an invaluable insight into the oeuvre of a man who left behind very little documentation of his architectural process and ideas.
