The 20th century's architectural revolution opened up dazzling new possibilities for stained glass. Over the last thirty years, in particular, a great many projects have been created all over the world, in both new buildings and historical churches and institutions. From the magnificent Art Nouveau ceilings of Parisian department stores, to exuberant designs from the Islamic world, and further still to the temples and palaces of India, Indonesia and Japan, stained glass has become a medium through which the traditional and the avant-garde come together to create sumptuous decoration.
Studies of this phenomenon have been rare until now, and this book is a pioneer in the survey of this fascinating field.
