The North Transept Rose Window of Chartres Cathedral

 

 

This much overdue addition to the Paradoxplace pages was prompted by the recent purchase of Painton Cowan's superb book "The Rose Window" (right). 

 

The 2005 book (not to be confused with an earlier smaller work by the same author) is published by Thames & Hudson, one of the leaders in high quality coffee table books packed with knowledge and outstanding photos, and this is one of their best.  

 

Thames and Hudson have also published another book by Painton Cowan titled "English Stained Glass"
