Stained Glass Windows in Llanfihangel Genau'r Glyn Church (Wendall Publications, 2013) 26 pp + ii.

This full colour booklet was produced for the church at the time of the reordering of the west end of the church, completed in 2013. The stained glass in the church is all twentieth century and includes good work by James Powell & Sons (Whitefriars), Celtic Studios and Roy Lewis. The Roy Lewis windows are of particular interest as the artist grew up in the area before leaving to train in Swansea and then the Royal College of Art in London. As he emigrated to Australia in the mid-1960s there are only a few windows by him in Wales, and his Ascension in the south wall of the church is arguably his best work.

The church is at Llandre between Aberystwyth and Borth in Ceredigion.

I wrote and designed the booklet, using my own photography, and drew on archival research on the windows undertaken by the churchwarden Avril Thomas. The text was translated by Susan Jenkins for a separate booklet using the same design. The booklet was printed by the local press Y Lolfa in Talybont.
