I’ve just published a new book:
This unique book showcases eighty-one recumbent effigies in over forty-five English parish churches scattered around the country. The images are all taken from above the effigies, a view that has in most cases never been seen before.
“Recumbent effigies are a common form of memorial in English parish churches. Using special photographic recording techniques this unique book features eighty one recumbent tomb effigies as seen from overhead. The effigies range in date from the 13th through to the 20th century and are located in churches over a large geographical area. This book is indespensible for those interested in armour, costumes, art history, or simply gaining a general overview of our sculptural heritage.”

It’s been a while since my last post. Recently I’ve written some Android apps that may be of interest. The first is a mapping application showing the open and locked churches in England (there are both free and paid versions of the app): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cbnewham.keyholderdemo Then there is a small demo arcade game (nothing to do with churches): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cbnewham.spacemazedemo and finally my swipe-like keyboard (also nothing to do with churches): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cbnewham.ascribblefree.android

In celebration of 15 years of my Project in which I am photographing the rural parish churches of England, I recently put together a short video:
