'Entering the courtyard of Somerset House is an exercise in time travel. Apart from the TV arial and stray paper coffee cup, the modern world melts away in the confines of this former Royal Palace, Naval Office and inland revenue HQ. This new limited edition print is titled 'The Secret History of Somerset House', and provides a novel vision of one of Londoners' favourite 'contemplative spaces', weaving together images of architectural splendour, with glimpses of arcane history and contemporary quotidian public life, exposition and endeavour.'
