hardback with dj in very good condition

146 pp. Profusely illustrated with b/w photos and drawings. Illustrated double-page title page printed in colors. Artist John Piper's writings on architecture and topography. Jacket design duplicates the title page illustration from a painting by the author.

A collection of Piper's writings on English architecture written during the war years and originally published in the Architectural Review and other publications. The range is eclectic (nautical architecture, gin palaces and pubs, the concept of pleasing decay, and a house by Pugin, among others) but Piper's nervous worry about a disappearing England and his admiration for everyday architecture run through each of the articles, which are illustrated with Piper's own drawings, engravings and photographs. 8vo
