Glorious Glass: Stained Glass in the Abbey Museum Collection is a full coloured illustrated catalogue of the historical stained glass in the Abbey Museum. It is the first major publication of this extraordinarily rich collection, spanning some 700 years. The book covers the famous Winchester Cathedral glass and armorial panels from Warwickshire and London, together with all of the 75 medieval, Renaissance and Arts and Crafts windows illustrated after a ten-year conservation program. With generous assistance from international scholars and a foreword by Sarah Brown, the book makes the Abbey Museum’s complete collection available to researchers and the general public for the first time. Beautifully designed by one of Queensland’s leading graphic artists and written by Michael Strong, Senior Curator at the Abbey Museum, its 296 pages tell of the history and artistic significance of each panel.
