VG++. 1st. 25.5cm deep by 19cm. An astonishing and scholarly book on church roof bosses, those decorative carving found hign, and distant from the naked eye, in many of the UK's historic medieval and gothic churches, For 20 year before his book was published the author photographed these decorations --- religious, biblical, figures, animals, birds and other subjects --- which had remained virtually unseen since they were carved and positioned centuries before. He chaged that bringing them down to eye level with his clear and highly detailed photographs. Literally a book that broke new ground. 235 pages including index.
