SPCK Publishing, 2002. - 96 pages.

This book is confined to illustrations of symbols used in the Church, along with identification and brief notes relative to color or traditional legends. Canon West has furnished the colors suggested as well as some of the designs. Space permits only one illustration for each saint, though there are usually several symbols by which that saint is known. It is the purpose of this book to acquaint the reader with these emblems and relate them to fact or legend in simple terms. Visual aids prove helpful to teachers, pupils, and those engaged in parish efforts to beautify the Church.

The ancient heralds expressed their messages with clean firm lines, good balance, proportion, and splendor of color. This form of art has played an important role in the Church through the centuries, due to its ability to bring into focus important persons and facts in her history.
Acquaint yourself with the symbols that follow and go a step farther, too. Obtain reading material so that you may, even more fully, relate the symbol to the life of the person or event represented. A broader knowledge, and interest in efforts to make the House of God more
beautiful for him, should be the aim of all Churchmen.
