Description:
In Heavenly Vaults, photographer David Stephenson captures the sublime beauty of vaulted ceilings in the great Gothic and Romanesque churches, cathedrals, and basilicas of Europe. More than 80 kaleidoscopic structures are presented, from barrel and rib vaults to more complex lierne and diamond vaults. Stephenson's large format photographs reveal the geometric complexity and decorative detailing of these architectural marvels like never before. These are the pictures you wish you took on that pre-college backpacking trip through Europe. Don't miss your chance again.
