Shortlisted for Irish Published Book of the Year 2013

This is a revised and reprinted edition of a book originally published in 1989 about the Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator, Harry Clarke (1887–1931). Additions include updated information concerning the current whereabouts of the artist’s work. Everything that was said about this book when it first appeared can be repeated again: this is a simply magnificent achievement, beautifully written, immaculately researched, and lavishly illustrated.
