The original edition of "Windows For The Soul" was published in 2000. Since that date, Bovard Studio of Fairfield, Iowa has completed so many new commissions that the book cried out for a complete overhaul. This revised edition continues to feature ecclesiastic stained glass and remains a valuable resource with inside information on church window commissions. Ron Bovard, has updated most chapters, added several new stories and increased the number of images from 350 to over 480 colour photographs and window designs. The author shares his masterful vision and discerning wisdom gleaned from thousands of commissions and restoration projects. The extensive text is a delightful read and describes some of Mr Bovard's more memorable undertakings. In addition, the reader will gain some insight into the creative process, as well as an overview of project work flow including, custom painting, staining, fabrication, bracing, and protective glazing. One notable chapter tracks a complete restoration of an original Tiffany window from its careful removal to final reinstallation.
