Wednesday’s woman wood engraver and a walrus

August 20, 2014

Coming back to work at Special Collections yetsterday I uncovered a book ; I had left to one side before my holiday.  Entitled the Adults alphabets : examples of English press alphabet books from the last hundred years, with an alphabetical description, copious illustrations and a checklist of press alphabet books by David Blamires, I thought it might be worth a look.

I simply adore these wood cuts by Edwina Ellis of whom I know nothing.  I will look out for more of her work …
