St Paul's Cathedral, at the heart of the City of London, is a building of immense dignity. Wren's architecture is imposing in its scale and Baroque splendour, and the cathedral has a strong spiritual presence. It also has associations with many of the important people and events in Britain's history. Wren and the work of his builders and craftsmen are described in authoritative detail, as is the contribution of later artists and restoration experts. The specially commissioned photographs capture the character of the cathedral: its architecture, the detail of its decoration and the accumulation of monuments. This book presents a unique insight into one of England's best-loved and most visited placesÜber den Autor:
