Harold Curwen and Oliver Simon


Brian Webb

Harold Curwen and Oliver Simon jointly ran the Curwen Press during its heyday, commissioning illustration and jacket design from outstanding artists such as Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious, Paul Nash and Edward Ardizzone. This volume looks at the whole range of books and printed ephemera it produced between 1915 and the late 1930s. 

The Design series presents introductions to some of the great names in British book design, illustration and typography. Each book is exceptionally well illustrated, with fine reproductions accompanied by a concise and informative essay on a designer’s career or a significant moment in the history of 20th-century design.
