Description

First Edition, Scarce

The first edition of this scarce work in the publisher's original pictorial paper wraps.

A touching and highly illustrated work, making the case for the use of bombed churches as war memorials, after the end of the Second World War. Architectural sketches sit alongside descriptive text explaining how certain ruined churches in London could be wonderful sanctuaries, open spaces and war memorials after a time of great turmoil.

With a foreword by Dean Walter Matthews, who was then the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral.

Condition
