Book of the Month – September
Our book of the month for September is Kathleen Basford’s wonderful “The Green Man” described by The Times as ” The rarest, most recondite and fascinating art book, which is a folklore and magic book as well…it is an incredibly thorough study, with every example illustrated, of the weird foliate heads or masks found in the medieval churches and cathedrals of Western Europe”
William Anderson wrote “This book has opened up new avenues of research, not only into medieval man’s understanding of nature, and into conceptions of death, rebirth and resurrection in the middle ages, but also into our concern today with ecology and our relationship with the green world.”
