Strong on the Saints - on the Architecture Not So Much
on 2 July 2014
This is a pocket (large pocket admittedly) 280 page guide with a strong cover and a straightforward arrangement, starting with the exterior, then going inside and progressively examining the detail. I'm an architecture buff, so would have welcomed much much more on the succeeding styles of English church building from pre-Norman times onward, but there is very little, and more than half the book devoted to the religious aspects (durr, I hear you say), with a sixty page guide to well-depicted saints. Highly recommended if that's what you need when visiting our wonderful churches, but look elsewhere for the craftsmanship.
