A stunning collection of Edward Bawden ephemera featuring catalogues for Fortnum and Mason. Bawden had a close association with Fortnum & Mason, having been commissioned by the store to design a range of tea towels, Christmas cards, and other products in the 1950s and 1960s. His designs often featured whimsical, colourful illustrations of animals, plants, and landscapes, which were used to adorn various products sold by the store. All copies are in near fine condition.
