There's a reasonably direct linkage between my appreciation of this book as a child (I blew through it again last year and think it still reads well) and my present longing for Horn and Born's "The Plan of St. Gall" as the one artifactual book I most long to possess. This book was part of that core, early, exposure that produced in me a life-long interest in Gothic ecclesiastical architecture, heraldry, peasant studies, calligraphy, plainsong and choral singing, military architecture, T.E. Lawrence, and European history, not to mention stained glass.
