About the Author
Emma Rose Barber is an art historian who has been teaching art history mainly to adults for many years. She has also taken specialist study tours to cities and towns in Italy and the Netherlands. She specialises in the medieval and Renaissance periods and has a particular fondness for quirky, less-well known art. And it was this interest that took her to wandering around the streets of London, entering and visiting churches that she never knew were there; let alone what wonders they hold in store! She has given lectures and tours in museums and has written articles ranging from Bloomsbury Bookplates to the Romanian folk pocket.
