The Stained Glass of A.W.N. Pugin

by Stanley Shepherd
420 pp, Hardbound

“This eagerly awaited study provides a complete record of Pugin’s extraordinary achievements in stained glass design and manufacture. Beautifully illustrated with photography by Alastair Carew-Cox, it shows how Pugin rose to the challenges of creating stained glass in the early Victorian period according to medieval principles; how he worked with leading makers of the day; how he forged a partnership with John Hardman of Birmingham; how this relationship worked; who his clients were; and what he sought to express in the windows. These were made for churches and houses throughout Britain and Ireland and some also found their way to North America, Europe and the Antipodes. A detailed gazetter gives all the known information about each window. This book is the culmination of many years research by the author and is based on his Ph.D these about Pugin’s stained glass.”
