Synopses & Reviews
For over half a century, Louis C. Tiffany oversaw the production and marketing of a multitude of decorative elements for many of America's leading congregationsand#151; Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish. This beautifully illustrated volume includes preliminary designs, cartoons, watercolor sketches, and archival photographs of these windows, interiors, and pieces of ecclesiastic furniture, many never published before.
The first volume to explore the vast assortment of church decorations and memorials produced by the Tiffany Studios.
