Andrew Hill


Who was John Ruskin?

What did he achieve - and how?

And what makes his ideas so important today?

In the bicentenary year of the birth of this great thinker and champion of the Lake District, Andrew Hill explains how he discovered Ruskin and how the Victorian writer's ideas on art, architecture, economics, science and the environment shape the way we live, think and work today. 

Andrew Hill is an award-winning columnist, senior journalist and management editor at the Financial Times. He is the author of Ruskinland: How John Ruskin Shapes Our World (Pallas Athene, 2019) and Leadership in the Headlines, a selection of his FT columns and insights about how leaders lead.
