Described as "a marriage of minds, a perfect combination of sympathies" their shared love of 'unfashionable architecture' and the country's landscape coloured both their own work and the Shell Guide travel books on which they worked together from the 1930s - 1950s.

Frances Spalding is an art historian, critic and biographer specialising in twenteith century art, a past editor of The Burlington Magazine and now Emeritus Fellow of Clare Hall,Cambridge. Her many books include John Piper, Myfanwy Piper: Lives in Art (Oxford University Press, 2017).
