Circle City Steeples

Over the past eighteen months, it has been our honor to celebrate thirty-five historic churches in Indianapolis. We are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to photograph and research these churches. The depth and beautiful diversity of faith in our city is shown in the very stones of our city’s beloved religious buildings, witnessed by soaring steeples, contemplative chapels, and dazzling stained glass. Churches tell the story of a city and we are pleased to offer the story of the churches of Indianapolis. 

Circle City Steeples: An Old Churches Indy project is a 9”x12” coffee table book printed by Vedere Press on Massachusetts Avenue. With more than 160 pages of full color photographs, each church featured in the book will span four pages and has been carefully researched to richly detail its history and architecture.


The first of its kind, this celebration of Indy’s churches is available for $50 by pre-ordering below! We are expecting orders to arrive very soon!


Faithfully,

Lee Little

Update: February 22, 2022


We want to thank everyone who has already purchased a book. We've been informed by our publisher that there is a nation-wide paper shortage that will be delaying printing. Even so, your preorder is so helpful to us. It will help us decided how many books to (finally) print when the time comes!

Update: April 26, 2022


Thank you for your continued support of our project, Circle City Steeples. Kati and I understand and echo the frustration you may have at continued delays in receiving your copies of our book. 

When we started this project in early March 2020, we could not have anticipated how much the world would change before it was completed. While many things are returning to normal, book design and printing are apparently a bit slower to respond - though not for lack of trying on our part.

This morning our publisher indicated that the books will not be in our hands until July, many months removed from the (second) original quote of February. Thank you again for your generous support of our project and for sticking with us during these delays. We are excited to finally deliver the books as soon as they are available.
