Recommend a book with interior photos of Rosslyn Chapel

We visited Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh recently, and unfortunately photos were not allowed inside, and I found no books for sale there that included lots of interior pictures. It was truly spectacular and unlike any other church I've been in.

Can one of you recommend such a book? I just want lots of good interior photographs.

I do NOT want a book about myths, conspiracy theories, the Da Vinci Code, etc.

Thanks!

Well, for a free Google E-book with several nice woodcuts/engravings and guaranteed free of Da Vinci Code nonsense, take a look at John Hill Burton's Baronial and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland:

Thank you, I love old books like that and that does have very nice engravings.

But I would still like to hear of anything having many good photographs, if anyone knows of one.
