Book review

If you have ever looked at a religious painting, a statue or a stained glass window, and wondered who that person is, then this book is for you. Taking 130 of the most popular and widely represented saints (from the archangels and the Apostles to Saint Bernadette and Padre Pio), the authors provide brief accounts of each saint's achievements (real or legendary) and details of their conventional attributes - usually the tools of their trade or the instruments of their martyrdom. They provide a clear colour representation of each saint - a likeness which may be a work of high art, but equally may be taken from the popular imagery of playing cards, inn signs or advertisements. A comprehensive reference index enables the reader to identify the saints, by looking up the attributes represented - from anchors (St Clement) to wounds (St Roch if in the leg, St Rita if in the brow). Practical, attractive and well-informed, this little book will be invaluable for students and lovers of art of all ages.
