Does anyone know of this beautiful, undated and uncopyrighted publication? It talks of the public unveiling in 2004, so it is obviously less than 18 years old. I found it today, in perfect condition, in a Rotary book sorting exercise in - of all places - Laurieton, near Port Macquarie, NSW! Its 22 pages contain the history of the "Doom" painting, with illustrations and detailed descriptions of all the elements in the painting. It looks like it would have been sold in the Holy Trinity shop, so not exactly unique, but if it is of interest to the historians amongst you, I would be happy to post it

That's a very kind offer Johnnie. They were still selling it the last time I visited the church, though they have no online shop. It does have a rather great web site including a 360 degree tour

Hi Helen I had a feeling they would be readily available, but just to find it in this obscure part of eastern Australia was such a surprise. Assuming anyone in Coventry can go and buy it, I will keep this one on my shelves, and the grandkids will ultimately be able to see how the Christian Churches scared the sh*t, or the hell, out of (or into) their communities. Until very recently, Australia had a government that relied on that sort of strategy, so it won't be entirely foreign to them. I'm not sure what impact it would have on my grandkids, but if they can watch Game of Thrones without turning into bloodthirsty terrorists, and watch online salesmen without getting hooked, they should be able to cope with the (hopefully) ridiculous idea of Judgement Day! Fingers crossed!
