'Churches' is a profound and lively overview of famous and lesser-known Christian churches throughout the world. Judith Dupre brings them together in 65 essays illustrated with colour and black-and-white photographs that range from classic vintage imagery to state-of-the art digital technology. The book includes a spread of the restored ceiling at the Sistine Chapel; close-up views of Renaissance frescoes, sculpture, and mosaics; and powerfully simple images of Early American meetinghouses.
With its engaging text, compelling photography, and inviting design, 'Churches' presents a complex subject in a readily accessible format, making it a marvellous gift for people interest in religion, spirituality, and architecture.
