Books signed by Meninsky rarely come onto the market. This one is dedicated to William Johnstone who was the principal of the Central Arts and Crafts School where Meninsky also taught. Johnstone wrote of Meninsky “Bernard Meninsky was a particularly fine classical draughtsman for whom I had a great respect”.
