£30.00

Paperback

Clifford Webb (1894-1972) was one of Britain’s foremost wood engravers and a successful illustrator of children’s books, but today his work is often overlooked. Held in high esteem by his peers, he studied under Eric Gill and Walter Sickert, and later taught at St Martin’s, but much of his work was either deliberately destroyed or otherwise failed to survive. Now, the renowned wood engraver Simon Brett has painstakingly assembled much of what remains of this extraordinary artist’s output for this first book about Webb.
