A Retrospect of Churches, published in 1964, was a portfolio of twenty-four lithographs of churches and church architecture. The prints contain a wide variety of architectural and artistic styles, demonstrating both the breadth of Piper’s interest in English churches and of his technique. The church shown here, Inglesham, on the boundary of Wiltshire and Berkshire, is a small but largely unaltered thirteenth century church, once a favourite of the designer William Morris.
