Item description for Sir Ninian Comper: An Introduction to His Life and Work, With Complete Gazetteer by Anthony Symondson & Stephen Arthur Bucknall...
Sir Ninian Comper (1864-1960) was one of the last of the great Gothic Revival architects, his work concentrating on churches and their contents. He is well-known for his stained glass, his use of colour, and his subtle integration of Classical and Gothic styles. Anthony Symondson, the leading authority on Comper, describes how and why Comper developed his distinctive approach, using early photographs to show Comper's work in its original form. He also charts Comper's friendship with Sir John Betjeman, who championed his work with mixed results. There is a complete gazetteer by Stephen Bucknall, who knew Comper through his family's professional connections, and a reprint of Comper's essay, Of the Atmosphere of a Church . Overall the book gives unique insight into the late flowering of English Gothic Revival church architecture.
