The Green Man Book

In stock

In The Green Man, architectural historian Richard Hayman parts the carved foliage to have a closer look at this common yet mysterious character.

The Green Man is a familiar face – but one that we struggle to understand. Peering out of his leafy wreath, he adorns church architecture across Europe. But where did he come from, and what is a supposed pagan figure doing in so many ecclesiastical buildings?

The Green Man has some excellent images of its subject, as well as a guide to green man spotting.
