Capturing the Light

Author(s): Brian Miller

NZ Non Fiction

 Roy Miller was New Zealand's foremost stained glass artist for 30 years, from the 1950s and hundreds of his windows are on display in churches across the country. A background of stained glass history and a description of how the windows are created, helps the reader appreciate the beauty of the many windows reproduced in this book. The artists who design windows are also often unknown, but the lives of Roy Miller's three main designers, Fred Ellis, Ken Bunton and Beverley Shore Bennett, are portrayed here along with their creations. The first book in New Zealand to portray stained glass church windows nationwide. A valuable record of New Zealand's stained glass cultural heritage and a reminder of the urgent need for conservation of these works of art.
