Definition :
A clean book with unmarked pages, firm binding, no foxing, unsoiled, and that it is as close to new as possible but it is not brand new.
Vigorous, stimulating, humorous, contemplative, intellectual, imaginative, innovative, Patrick Reyntiens is still producing magnificent stained glass in his late eighties. Britain's foremost stained glass designer is especially known for his glass at Liverpool's Roman Catholic Cathedral and his work at Coventry Cathedral in collaboration with John Piper. This scholarly, beautifully illustrated book, designed and written by Libby Horner, catalogs not only all Reyntiens' ninety-eight commissions over the past 60 or so years (including the famous Piper/Reyntiens collaborations) but also over six hundred autonomous panels. The range of work, from traditional to abstract to figurative, and the range of subject matter from religious themes to Ovid's Metamorphoses to commedia dell'arte is truly inspiring and guaranteed to captivate even the most skeptical. The book includes a preface by Sir Roy Strong, an introduction by Frances Spalding and an after word by the artist himself, a glossary of terms, notes on recurring themes and symbolism, a tabulated biography and an extensive bibliography.
