Written in collaboration with his widow, this is the first book to explore and reproduce the magnificent stained glass of this renowned 20th century artist. John Piper (1903–1992) was arguably the greatest 20th century designer in stained glass and this is the first book to explore and reproduce this magnificent work. It establishes Piper's standing as a hugely influential artist beyond the medium of paint. Over 100 examples of Piper's stained glass from around the world are reproduced, allowing the reader to appreciate for the first time the range of the work and providing an illustrated historical catalogue. Also reproduced are many original sketches and plans as well as photographs of the artist at work.
This copy is in excellent condition.
