Art historian and Macclesfield Reflects member Geoff Archer has published a new book
“NOT FORGOTTEN: FIRST WORLD WAR MEMORIALS IN AND AROUND MACCLESFIELD”
The book shows the wide range of war memorials produced in Macclesfield and the surrounding villages, ranging from simple plaques or tablets, through statues, stained glass windows, obelisks, crosses and crucifixes, to more utilitarian memorials such as halls, hospitals and alms houses. It aims to provide some explanation of the processes of commemoration, of the social and artistic contexts in which memorials were planned, and of the intended meanings and interpretations of what was produced.
170 page A5 softback book, over 130 photos, price £7.50
The book may be purchased at Macclesfield Reflects events, at the Visitor Information Centre at Macclesfield Town Hall, or by contacting Geoff via his website.
