From the late 19th century, wood engraving became a medium for creative expression. One of the most prolific and significant engravers was Gwen Raverat (1885-1957). Raverat had an impressionistic approach - her skill at conveying atmosphere and different qualities of light was unrivalled. This book was first published in a limited edition, handprinted by Simon Lawrence at his Fleece Press. It contains an in-depth assessment of Gwen Raverat as a wood engraver, exploring her technique and her experiments with colour prints. In addition it contains the first catalogue of all her engravings, and a descriptive bibliography of the books and ephemera which she illustrated.
