Published by Yale University Press and focused on the famous fresco cycle of the life of St Francis often attributed to Giotto, the book has been praised as a “lavishly illustrated and thought-provoking work of exemplary and accessible scholarship” (Daily Telegraph). The Art Book Prize, administered by the Authors’ Club and supported by The Art Newspaper, is awarded annually to "the best book on art or architecture published in English, anywhere in the world in the past year". The Department would like to congratulate Dr Cooper on this notable achievement.
