This unusual book shows Britain and its buildings adapting to the war. This parish church, an icon of village life, is seen in its new role as a war memorial. The style of illustration is neither overly traditional, nor cutting-edge, and the use of warm but bright colours applied selectively, ensures an optimistic but not celebratory tone to the image.
