Paperback.  First edition.  Text by Ian Bain.  ‘This book sums up thirty years of wood engraving for collectors and publishers between 1960 and 1990, showing 120 selected prints.  The selection includes photograps of work-in-progress and of painted studies for engravings to illustrate the author’s belief that the particular quality of the works stems from the artist’s tonal painting.  Condition: rear cover a little sunned.  Previous owner’s tipped-in bookplate to front endpaper, otherwise very good.
