Two splendid new books likely to appeal to Vidimus readers will be published in the autumn.
Arts and Crafts Stained Glass by Peter Cormack will be published by Yale University Press. This will be the first comprehensive account of stained glass produced by members of the Arts & Crafts Movement in Britain, Ireland and the USA from the 1880s to the 1950s, and will feature work by Christopher Whall (1849–1924), Paul Woodroffe (1875–1954), and Karl Parsons (1884–1934), as well the achievements of pioneering women stained-glass artists, such as Mary Lowndes (1856–1929).

Wilhelmina Geddes by Nicola Gordon Bowe is likely to generate as much enthusiasm as Peter Cormack’s long-awaited volume. Wilhelmina Geddes (1887–1955) has been described as the greatest stained-glass artist of her time and her windows have an exceptionally powerful presence. The book will be published by Four Courts Press in Dublin.
