John Ruskin was one of the most eminent figures of the Victorian Age. His writings on natural history, art, architecture, social and economic matters helped shape British cultural life and had a significant impact on a wide range of other countries.

Ruskin was a prolific writer - over 250 articles and books were published in his lifetime. The Guild of St George, founded by Ruskin in 1871, encapsulated many of his interests.
