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.

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.
