Available from The Roper Exhibition Group at 20 Palace Avenue, Llandaff, Cardiff CF5 2DW, at £3.50 plus p. & p. of 44p for a single copy, £1.83 for five.

The illustration is one of the Stations of the Cross done by Frank Roper in the early 1970s for the Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, in Newcastle Emlyn, West Wales.

Roper, who studied with Henry Moore, became Vice Principal at the School (later College) of Art in Cardiff, where he joined Epstein and John Piper in the restoration of the blitzed Llandaff Cathedral. He died in 2000, and is far too little known, say the producers of this booklet about him. A master of work in wood, bronze, silver, aluminium, glass and ceramics, Roper had many private patrons; but the bulk of his work consists of the statues, windows, and ecclesiastical furnishings large and small that he did for churches.
