 Gwen Raverat Engravings Booklet

Gwen Raverat was an influential figure in the revival of  wood cuts as a medium in the 1920's. She worked in theatre design, book design, book illustration and art criticism. She died in 1957. She is best known as a wood engraver of great skill and originality. 

We love these little books, perfect slipped into a Christmas stocking or secreted into a greetings card. They are only small 16pp long and the size of a postcard but all the more perfect for that. 

"These books hover between a greeting and a present. They fit a common envelope and go for minimum postage. In cold bedrooms only one hand to the wrist need suffer exposure. A distinguished novelist recommends them for reading in the bath. An ambassador, albeit American, claims they can be palmed from the cuff during tedious speeches and profitless sermons."
