Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is little doubt that Angelo Maggi has produced a lavishly illustrated book in 'Rosslyn Chapel:An Icon Through the Ages'. There are many excellent reproductions from paintings and photographs taken of this stunning building throughout it's history. The author has done much research about the construction and history of this endlessly fascinating chapel and it is always an interesting read. I must admit though that I was slightly disappointed when I received this book and I will explain why.

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.
