The Donhead Legacy


Donhead was set up in 1990 to publish building conservation, preservation and architecture books, specializing in original material for professionals, academics and historic building owners.


The list also included an extensive range of classic reprints on building and construction topics such as lime and plastering, covering the period from 1830 to 1950.

A catalogue of all the titles we produced can be seen here


In 1995 Donhead launched the Journal of Architectural Conservation which is now firmly established as one of the

most authoritative international journals in the field.
