Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This original collection unites the finest woodcuts of one of the twentieth century's most creative and prolific English artists. Ranging from the religious to the erotic, the engravings include images inspired by The Song of Songs, The Canterbury Tales, and The Four Gospels.

Eric Gill was a sculptor, typeface designer, stonecutter, and engraver. In addition to designing such well-known typefaces as Joanna, Perpetua, and Gill Sans, he produced illustrations for more than a hundred books. The first affordable edition to showcase Gill's wood engravings, this volume constitutes a feast for the eyes as well as an important and accessible reference work for artists, designers, crafters, and bibliophiles.
