Reviews
"Britain's great Renaissance man - in the sense both that the Renaissance is his period, and that he can turn his hand to anything - appears as spring-chickenish as he is inexhaustible. His 43rd book, The Elizabethan Image, is published this month, and its sequel, The Stuart Image, is already being written - Hannah Betts, Telegraph

"There is no better person to introduce this period afresh and to convey its richness and complexity, with the aid of the magnificent illustrations that run through this book" --Frances Spalding, Daily Mail (Book of the Week)

"[A] lavish production [. . .] Strong has always had an instinctive feel for, and understanding of, the Elizabethan mindset and aesthetic. This book is no exception -- and is particularly good on the ways in which the upwardly mobile used portraiture to signal their social ascent. Learned yet accessible, The Elizabethan Image provides a rich overview of the portraiture of the period which will appeal to fans of Strong's original publications as well as to a new generation of readers" -- Elizabeth Goldring, Spectator
