About Timothy Richards
How to Buy
This set of bookends features a detail from Queens Cross Church Glasgow. Stained glass has been placed behind the two windows allowing light to shine from behind. Though not bought in great quantity these bookends have a very clean, simple line. Yet again they illustrate Charles Rennie Mackintoshs talent for space and detailing. The roll top lintel above the door is very characteristic. Queens Cross Church interior is set under a roof symbolising the upturned ribs of the ark. The whole church continues this symbolic theme and is a fascinating place to experience.
