This guide begins with the original Holy Grail Tapestries series, which was part of the interior decoration of Stanmore Hall in Middlesex, produced between 1890-1895. It goes on to consider each of the tapestries in Birmingham's collection, which were later versions. It concludes with a look at the complex, collaborative process involved in their creation.
