BEAUTY IN THE SHADOWS: Wrought Iron in the Washington National Cathedral
Visitors coming to the Washington National Cathedral are often overwhelmed by the impact of the physical setting.

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)
