Launch of 'Lincoln Cathedral: The Biography of a Great Building' APRIL 2015

Jonathan Foyle's personal study of the great cathedral

Jonathan Foyle’s fascinating personal study of Lincoln Cathedral was launched last week at both the Cathedral itself and in London. The launch in Lincoln had around 90 guests, with Jonathan Foyle and Jim Newton, the photographer behind the beautiful images in the book, signing copies. 

Having grown up in Lincolnshire, Jonathan spoke of how the Cathedral captured his interest from an early age. He explained how and why he views the Cathedral as a ‘feminine’ building, an idea which he develops in his book, and his belief that Lincoln Cathedral is one of the world’s greatest buildings - spectacular in design and full of interesting quirks. 

The following day the book was launched in London at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street, where Jonathan addressed guests with an informal speech. We are grateful to the hotel for their support of the event.

We are delighted with the result of this collaboration with the Cathedral and Jonathan.
