"Brian Clarke and Linda McCartney are both names to conjure with. Between the late 60s and her untimely death in April, McCartney established a solid reputation as a world-class photographer with an enormous number of exhibitions to her credit, including a solo show at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and six books of photographs of which 'Sixties: Portrait of an Era' and 'Roadworks' are probably the best known. For his part Clarke has revolutionised the way stained glass is now perceived, turning a craft with a reputation for ecclesiastical stuffiness and outmoded iconography into an architectural art vibrantly in tune with the times." – 'Photographs on Glass: Linda McCartney's Last Work with Brian Clarke', Crafts magazine 1998.

Subject of the 1997 book Brian Clarke–Linda McCartney: Collaborations, with essays by art historian Martin Harrison and Vitromusée Romont director Stefan Trumpler.
