“Visitors coming to the Washington National Cathedral are often overwhelmed by the impact of the physical setting.

What many do not notice on the first visit, though, is what some would call the most impressive work of all in the Cathedral’s fabric: the ironwork of Washington National Cathedral.

Now with this guide the intricate details of the cathedral’s ironwork is revealed in beautiful and often surprising ways.

Nol Putnam’s book, ‘Beauty in the Shadows,’ Barry Bem’s research, Christopher Budny’s and James Pittman’s photography provide a corrective way for all of us to experience this ironwork in its entire intricate splendor. It is the definitive catalogue and guide to the ironwork of the Washington National Cathedral.” – The Rt. Rev. Gary Hall,  Dean, Washington National Cathedral

Hardcover, 12 1/4″ x 9 1/4″, 192 pages, 260 illustrations.
