This is just a very brief announcement that today I opened a new shop which offers a selection of poetry, prayers and scripture on tiles. It is called, appropriately enough, VerseTile
We have launched the poetry section with some brand new items featuring poems by Emily Dickinson to which we will soon be adding many more works by poets from both sides of the pond. In the prayer section you will find tiles and tile boxes with the Lord's Prayer, the Serenity Prayer and the St Francis Peace Prayer, some accompanied by an image of stained glass. Last, not least, the scripture section begins with quotations from both Old and New Testaments including the ever-popular 23rd and 121st psalms, Jesus The Good Shepherd, the parable of the good Samaritan and Micah 6:8.

I recently had the good fortune to photograph some beautiful windows at St John's in Boonton and have uploaded a selection of them in this folder
There are 3 windows by Tiffany Studios - The Raising of Jairus's Daughter which, sadly, backs onto a church hall with less than perfect backlighting. The Good Samaritan and the Good Centurion.
Several of the images have been used to decorate ornaments and gift items which can be purchased from ChurchGiftshops.com with profits going towards the cost of repairing and restoring the windows.

I am pleased to announce that two important books on theology by Alister McGrath have been published with cover art incorporating two of our images. Both are the work of Blackwell Publishing and I have to say that they did a superb job of reproducing the images, which were of Henry Holiday windows in Calvary Episcopal Church in Summit, and the results look simply stunning. Here is a link to one of the two books on Amazon

This week saw publication of an article by John Gomez, local historian and preservationist, about the beautiful stained glass windows by Harry Clarke in the church of St Vincent de Paul in Bayonne. Here is a link to the article which appeared in the Jersey Journal.
USAF chaplain Fr Tim Butler was back in Kyrgyzstan this Christmas and reused the slide show which I made for the Christmas of 2004. Here is a link to an article about it which was run by the Boston Globe on Christmas Eve.
