Merrell Publishers have announced a new book on the Supreme Court entitled The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, History, Art, Architecture, Edited by Chris Miele.  It features chapters by Lady Hale and Lord Bingham which “explore the evolution of the court and of its home” and is: “Generously illustrated throughout, and featuring specially commissioned photographs of this historic building”.  It costs £35.

The Editor is described as “an architectural historian and town planner who has been engaged in the conservation of historic buildings. A Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, he has written widely on British architecture and urban history”.

UKSCBlog is still wating for its review copy, but in a Press release, the Supreme Court itself has noted the publication of the book with Lord Phillips quoted as saying

“The creation of a Supreme Court is a great event in the history of the constitution of the United Kingdom, and it is right that it should be marked by the publication of this book.”

We hope to be able to publish a review in due course.
