Product story

This is excellent introduction to the work of two major British designers and artists, Edward Bawden (1903-1989) and Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Bawden and Ravilious met in the Design School of the Royal College of Art in 1922. Their shared interest in illustration led to innovative experiments in print making and their friendship continued until the outbreak of war when both were commissioned as official war artists. Eric Ravilious was tragically killed on an air-sea rescue mission over Iceland. Edward Bawden survived the war and continued to work for London Transport, Fortnum & Mason and Twinings amongst others. This book is exquisitely illustrated with a drawing by Edward Bawden, 1950, and an engraving by Eric Ravillious, 1933.
