Original wood engraving by Paul Nash (1928). From an edition of 45. This is one of the trial proofs taken from the original block in the V & A by Ian Mortimer for Garton and Cooke in 1985.
‘This is one of the two blocks used for this pattern paper. The original design, subsequently reproduced on the cover of The Night Jaw by E.B. Brown, uses this block superimposed over areas of ochre on buff paper. It is interesting to note that in this block and the previous one Nash includes more than the area of the pattern repeat, which simplifies the printing by making the break between the blocks harder for the eye to discern.’
