Glory, Azure and Gold: 12 stained-glass windows by Thomas Denny – First Edition, 2015


This is not only our first book but it is the first book about the work of Thomas Denny (b. 1956) whose radiant windows are to be found in the Cathedrals of Durham, Gloucester and Hereford, as well as in many parish churches across England. With a foreword by the Very Reverend Michael Tavinor, Dean of Hereford, and the introduction by Patrick Reyntiens, the book has eleven essays and a poem each on a different window. Rowan Williams has contributed the poem on the window in St Catharine’s College Chapel, Cambridge.

Printed in an edition of 125 copies the book has an original etching by Thomas Denny and colour photographs by James O. Davies and Rebecca Lane, both of English Heritage. The essays have been written by Mark Cazalet (artist), Emma Crichton-Miller (art historian and critic), Christopher Gibbs (art dealer), John Julius Norwich (writer), William Packer (art critic), Chloë Reddaway (theologian and art historian), Jane Ridley (historian), Chris de Souza (musician), Pamela Tudor-Craig (art historian), Roger Wagner (artist), Rowan Williams (theologian), Ann Wroe (historian).

The binding is by The Fine Book Bindery in Wellingborough.
