•Accompanied by insightful text that reveals details of Abbey life and the artist's experience

•A striking and original souvenir for anyone who has visited Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey has many identities - as a place of worship, theater of state, resting place of kings and memorial to statesmen and poets. Internationally acclaimed artist Alexander Creswell captures its many facets in these stunning watercolors.

The tranquility and shifting light of the Abbey's cloisters, chapels and library are captured here, along with the famous monuments of Poet's Corner and spectacular views from the triforium, soon to become the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries.

We also see moments in the life of the Abbey - from the celebration of the Eucharist, to the warmth and intimacy of the Carol service, to the magnificent wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

This book represents the culmination of a project that began in 2011, with the artist's commission to paint the Royal Wedding. Some of his sketches are shown alongside the finished works, affording a fascinating glimpse into the artistic process. This beautiful book perfectly captures the spirit of the Abbey and will be a treasured memento for anyone who has been to admire it.

Published to accompany an exhibition opening in Spring 2018.
