Planned for seven or eight years, this is a monumental production based on the Autobiography which Tirzah Garwood, the wife of Eric Ravilious, wrote when she was coming toward the end of her life.The section on life in Great Bardfield during the 1930s, among the unique artistic community is a fascinating first-hand, slightly detached account of a precious and outstanding group of artists.
The text has been transcribed from a number of Tirzah’s handwritten notebooks, and edited by her daughter Anne Ullmann; she has in addition written a separate critical study of Tirzah’s work, which will be published after this volume.
This beautiful book is bound in quarter patterned paper (designed by Tirzah) with a cloth spine and paper label, there are 550 copies, of which 475 are for sale.
