I borrowed this book initially from my library, but so interested was I that I bought my own copy. Simon Brett's introduces the book as follows:
And the book does just that. My copy is from 1992, 28 years ago, sadly some of those included have now passed away, but others are still very active, some as previous Chairs to The Society of Wood Engravers. I note with interest that the present Chair, Chris Daunt was a subscriber in 1992, but is now a very active member, as well as a wood engraving block maker.
This book is to be recommended if you wish to see a broad range of examples of wood engraving, and to learn a little about the history of the people involved.
