0 Reviews
Focusing on quality rather than quantity, this book traces the social and cultural meanings of monuments, both before and after their erection, and includes the much-neglected form of stained glass windows. The author, where possible, tells the story of each tomb, noting shape, situation and patronage how contemporaries responded to it.
