Crucifixion Press Reviews

'This little Phaidon series ... has been executed with rare intelligence. The images (well produced) come from all over the world, supreme masterpieces rubbing shoulders with surprising and magnificently chosen obscurities.' (Neil McGregor, Director of the British Museum, World of Interiors)
