Praise

The book will appeal to historians or scholars of material culture as well as to the medical personnel, photography lovers, and citizens familiar with the lore and lure of asylums.—Jane Simonsen, The Annals of Iowa

Astoundingly beautiful work on a subject that rarely gets the attention.

Aaron Britt, Dwell

Beautifully researched, exquisitely photographed and expertly composed and edited…Extraordinary.

Frieze

Asylum is of enormous value, as a record of how such places looked in their final years. More than that, and despite its dismal subject matter, it makes for a remarkable and endlessly fascinating book, one that can be recommended with enthusiasm to both the architectural historian and the general reader.
