Quite simply, I expected there to be a lot more discussion about the many carvings that fill the chapel and was even more disappointed at the lack of illustrations of the said carvings. Many of the illustrations are repeated in some form and mainly show the structure of the chapel. Maybe I am being churlish as there is no question that this is a generally very well produced book and well worth purchasing for anyone with an interest in Rosslyn Chapel. In no way do I regret buying this fine book and if it featured more on the carvings then I would definitely have given it five stars.
