Recumbent effigies are a common form of memorial in English parish churches. Using special photographic recording techniques this unique book features one hundred recumbent tomb effigies as seen from overhead. The effigies range in date from the 13th through to the 19th century and are located in churches over a large geographical area. This book is indespensible for those interested in armour, costumes, art history, or simply gaining a general overview of our sculptural heritage.
