Edward Bawden: Engravings
This portfolio of previously little known line-engravings on copper was published in March 1988, to celebrate the eighty-fifth birthday of Edward Bawden. The occasion was marked by an exhibition of the engravings at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Two of them were subsequently shown in the British Museum exhibition Avant-garde British Printmaking 1914-1960.
The engravings were published in an edition of 35 copies (+5 artist's proofs). They were printed by Philip Bawden on 300gsm mould-made paper size 18"x15". Prints are signed, numbered, titled and dated by Edward Bawden. The set of engravings is presented in a hand made solander box covered with a Bawden patterned paper printed at the Curwen Press.
Portfolio sold out, some individual prints available from time to time.
