Abstract:

A collection of Piper's writings on English architecture. Illustrated with reproductions of prints, engravings, drawings, and photographs by the author. Double-page color lithographed title-page by the author. Book jacket design duplicates the title page illustration.

"John Piper's topographical paintings and prints offer an unparalleled record of mid twentieth-century Britain"... The three lithographs in this post were made for an article by John Piper in 'The Cornhill' in November 1944, entitled 'Topographical Letter from Devizes', and form a loving record of the market town of Devizes in Wiltshire, "this most ordinary of English towns"... The lithographs were printed by Butler and Tanner on what Orde Levinson, author of the catalogue raisonné of Piper's prints, calls "standard quality machine-made lithographic cartridge paper"... Piper must have been particularly pleased with the four panel, two page 'Devizes: The Market Place', because he reworked it at a larger size and with much brighter colour for the double-page frontispiece and title page for his book 'Buildings and Prospects' in 1948.
