‘John Piper, so well known as a landscape painter and designer of stained glass, has been using a camera since the 1920’s. His photography, a frequent source of inspiration for his painting, has always displayed a painters sensibility and has remained an important part of his working life. A long association with the Shell County Guides and the Architectural Review inspired a wealth of remarkable images which equally reflect his knowledge of British architecture and his style as an artist.’

‘The selection made  for this book has been reproduced in duo-tone lithography from prints made under the artist’s direction. The large collection of his negatives is now housed in the Tate Gallery Archive.’ Fine copy
