This book is the first full-length study of twentieth-century British wood-engraved book illustration between the wars. It reveals the pioneering methods by which artists broke with the nineteenth-century wood engraving tradition. In the context of the historical background and contemporary cultural developments the author throws new light on the work and practices of the more innovative wood-engravers who had a profound effect on modern standards of book production. Very good copy
