Victorian Stained Glass

This beautifully-illustrated guide to the world of Victorian stained glass and its manufacturers and designers tells how artists and craftsmakers relearned the lost medieval art of colouring, painting and assembling stained glass windows and how in an age of industry they were templated and mass-produced. Several artistic movements influenced these designs, from the Gothic Revival through the Arts and Crafts Movement and into Art Nouveau at the dawn of the 20th century. A handy Places to Visit section shows where many of the best examples can be found.
