One Lump or Two is a delightful infusion of tea, limericks and the art of Edward Bawden RA (1903-1989). In the 1930s the artist collaborated with celebrated author and epicure A.J.A. Symons to produce a series of humorous limericks for Twinings Tea.
The complete set is shown here for the first time and Peyton Skipwith in his accompanying essay tells the story of this remarkable collaboration.
