Amid the turbulence of 20th century Lviv, meet four generations of women from the same fractious family, living beneath one roof and each striving to find their way across the decades of upheaval in an ever-shifting city. First there is Great-Granma, tiny and terrifying, shaped by a life of exile, hardship and doomed love, now fighting to keep her iron grip on the lives of her daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter. Then there is Aba, arthritic but devoted; cowed and despised by her mother, her one chance of happiness thwarted and her hopes of studying painting crushed. Thirdly, Marianna, the brilliant opera star: bold, beautiful and a fearless crusader for Ukrainian independence, who is shot during a demonstration and whose life and martyrdom casts a shadow upon the young life of the fourth and final woman, her daughter. More important even than these four women though is the character of the city of Lviv (or Lwów, or Lvov, depending on the point in history). A city of markets and monuments, streets and spires, where history and the present collide, civilisations clash and stories rise up on every corner. Translated from the Polish by Antonia Lloyd-Jones

This book is about one man’s journey to find himself and his place in the world, both spiritually and career-wise, and how his conventional views of the world, encompassing orthodox religion and old conforming and traditional ways, were radically changed by some extraordinary events during early education, travel, a career-switch to clinical psychology, and a powerful dream that led to a profound spiritual awakening. He worked in mental hospitals during the apartheid era and at the time of the un-banning of the ANC, and later began a private practice. The book has some historical value since the author’s grandfather was a great friend of General Smuts and was the Mayor of Benoni, a South African gold-mining town, during the turbulent wild-strike days of 1922, when his grandfather’s house was burned down by white strikers. The author’s mother attended the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games and sat near Adolf Hitler during the swimming events.

St John's Cathedral is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane. It was the vision of the third Bishop of Brisbane, William Webber, to build an Anglican Cathedral in the Queensland capital. For this purpose, he engaged architect John Loughborough Pearson (1817 - 1897) who had already designed Truro Cathedral in Cornwall. After the Foundation stone was laid in 1901 the building proceeded in three stages: 1906 - 1910, 1964 - 1968 and 1989 - 2009. St John's Cathedral has come to house a fine collection of 61 stained glass windows which reflect these three distinct building phases. Beautiful late 19th and early 20th Century glass fills much of the east end, doing the task stained glass has done for centuries: capturing in figurative language the stories of the faith and allowing generation after generation to steep themselves in the story of God's goodness and love. John Pearson's son Frank (1864-1947) went on to commission many of the early glass designs of William Bustard (1894-1973) and other artisans, which were made by such luminary firms as Burlinson & Grylls in the UK and R S Exton & Co in Brisbane. The 1960s mid-section glass includes the distinctive bold styles of glass artists David Kellock (1946-1978) and David Saunders, among others, capturing the vibrancy and self-confidence of that age. More recent additions in the West End portray the Cathedral as a future-focused place, ready to engage with the issues and needs of the current age. Designers Glenn Mack and Scott Maxwell conceived some of the latest, early 21st Century glass with the latter's tripartite Millennium Window created in 2001 and officially unveiled by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 2002. The Cathedral's windows create amazing light shows on the stone columns as the sunlight enters through the Genesis windows above the Ambulatory in the morning, culminating with the afternoon sun flooding through the Millennium Window above the West End doors. The dazzling rainbows and shots of colour change with Brisbane's sub-tropical seasons too, from the lower angles of the clearer northern light during the winter months to the hotter overhead glare of the city's summer. Efforts by photographers and designers to document these unique glass creations are both counterintuitive and vitally important. No two visitors ever experience the same prismatic explosions and subtle casts of coloured light. Replicating the stained-glass lancets in offset-press process inks will, inherently, fall short of those in-person, individual experiences. But the windows' distance in time - more than a century after designs were first committed to paper - and space - many lancets (not to mention the magnificent Rose Window in the North Transept) are tens of metres overhead the viewer - merits their documenting in as much magnificent detail as possible. The Tenth Anniversary, in October 2019, of the Consecration of the structurally-complete St John's Cathedral is an opportunity to revisit the globally-popular, sold-out first edition (2013) of WINDOWS with this fully-revised, expanded second edition (30cm x 30cm softback) of 144 pages (with 8 fold-out panels) featuring around 100 images and illustrations.

A treasure in the Hamptons: the extraordinary windows of a summer resort church spans nearly 150 years of stained glass in America Stained-glass windows are superb works of art, and the 45 stunning windows in St. Andrew's Dune Church, a red-shingled 1879 structure nestled among the dunes in Southampton, New York, make this intimately scaled house of worship one of the most picturesque summer resort churches on the eastern seaboard. The diverse assemblage ranges from breathtaking opalescent-glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge to Pre-Raphaelite-inspired panes by the British firm Heaton, Butler & Bayne to lushly floral windows by Bostonian Wilbur Herbert Burnham, and, coming full circle, to Stephen Hannock's opalescent-glass landscape window, installed in 2020. All contributed by congregants to memorialize loved ones, the windows offer a stunning overview of the history of stained glass from the 19th century to today. In her authoritative text, Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen recounts the storied history of the church, including the devastation to the building and many of its windows caused by the Great New England Hurricane of 1938, and describes each window in vivid detail: its subject, artistic style, and the person it memorializes. Illustrated with beautiful photographs of the church by Tria Giovan and specially commissioned images of every window by Joseph Coscia Jr., The Stained-Glass Windows of St. Andrew's Dune Church brings a little-known treasure of American decorative arts history to a wider audience.
