Review

Look at this book and give thanks that these angelic hosts were beyond the reach of the destroyers. Here for the first time they are rightly celebrated as a precious legacy from late medieval England. Sir Roy Strong, Art historian and former director of the National Portrait Gallery and V&A Museum One of the great things about this fascinating book is how the author has managed to capture individual angels in such detail… You quickly realise that, far from being 'generic angels', they all have very different personalities. Trevor Heaton, Eastern Daily Press, September 12-September 18, 2015 I am delighted to advise Angel Roofs of East Anglia does not disappoint; the beautiful photographs of the roofs and close ups of individual angles, all of which were taken by the author, are simply stunning; equally, the skill and artistry demonstrated in the composition, exposure and overall photographic layout is nothing short of a tour de force. Andy Sheppard, Little Waldingfield History Society, September 2015 This is a gem of a book. If you want to discover something of an inheritance, something of how the visual and the spiritual can encourage each other, something of the wonder of faith and skill of human hands dedicated to the glory of God, then read this book. Neil Thorogood, Reform Magazine, February 2016 --Sir Roy Strong, Art historian and former director of the National Portrait Gallery and V&A Museum

Michael Rimmer allows us to enter worlds that are otherwise remote. His text provides privileged access to the minds both of the medieval kings and carpenters who produced the roofs, and the early modern religious vandals who diminished them. But the greatest privilege is to see the roofs themselves through his camera lens. As we move from distant views of angels in whole ranks to close-ups of their faces and their attributes, we seem to hear the music of their instruments and the song of their voices, even feel the fluttering of those magic wings. To hold this book in your hands is to gain early entry to Paradise. --Professor John Onians, Professor Emeritus of World Art, University of East Anglia

The Angel Roofs of East Anglia captures perfectly the sheer beauty and fun of this amazing feature of East Anglian churches. The angels tell us so much about the history not only of the churches that they adorn but the craftspeople who created them. The Churches Conservation Trust is enormously proud to look after some of the amazing places photographed in the book; I think that when people see what treasures exist on their doorsteps Angel Roofs will inspire a whole new generation to visit and enjoy this country's historic churches. --Crispin Truman, Chief Executive of The Churches Conservation Trust
