Edward Ardizzone's World
Available in Stock
Edward Ardizzone (1900-1979) was one of Britain's best-loved illustrators and watercolourists, but little attention has been paid to his output as a printmaker. Compiled by his son, this first catalogue of Ardizzone's etchings and lithographs reproduces almost 100 charming, idiosyncratic, quietly humorous and often touching glimpses of English life in war and peace, at work and at play, on beaches and in pubs. A fascinating introduction explains the techniques of etching and lithography.
