Description

A limited edition of Eric Ravilious wood engravings for  the Fry Art Gallery.
To mark the renovation of the Gallery Webb & Webb Design have produced, and supervised the hand printing, from the original blocks now in the Gallery’s possession, of a limited edition of eight engravings by Eric Ravilious who produced a series of thirty-nine headpieces for the 1933 Kynoch Press Note Book. They are based on the area around Great Bardfield, where he and Tirzah were then living with Edward and Charlotte Bawden in Brick House. These images were chosen and laid out in this order in a Ravilious scrapbook. That, and most of the wood blocks, are now part of the North West Essex Collection in the Fry Art Gallery.
This numbered and blind stamped edition of 175 copies has been printed from the original wood engraved blocks at Hand and Eye Letterpress on Zerkall 7625 Smooth paper.
