`Stained Glass' manages to span the entire history of this luminous art form from its first appearance in the early Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century in under 100 pages. A beautifully and at times poetically written romp covering style, technique, material, reception, content, clients, artists, as well as haters and lovers of stained glass windows. Roger Rosewell leads the reader through this huge subject in a very entertaining and informative manner, and provides a useful check list of places to see, as well as a good bibliography for those who wish to delve deeper into the subject. Richly illustrated with excellent photographs, many of which are not `the usual suspects' one might find in other publications.

Shire Publications have produced yet another winner in this gem of a book. Beautifully presented and copiously illustrated in colour, the book takes us on all-encompassing history of stained glass from early Anglo-Saxon times through to the present. In particular I liked the illustrations, averaging slightly more than one per page, so vital to the understanding of glass production. The book can be enjoyed both by experts and beginners, and, as an ex-teacher' I would have this in any school library.

A first class introduction to the beautiful world of stained glass windows. There are some useful web links and other recommended reading if you want to go further.

This small book is one of the best illustrated overviews of the subject of stained glass, a most undervalued art form.

I have just acquired Stained Glass by Roger Rosewell.
For those who would like an easy to read excellent overview of the
subject with 100 pictures to illustrate I can highly recommend this
Shire Publication.

For a short guide to stained glass from medeieval to modern times this cannot be bettered. Well written, with a wide range of material, it enables one to get a grasp of a fascinating subect. Excellent photographs enhance it as well.
