This book by Roger Staton draws together the results of more than five years of original research into the life and work of Dorothy Woollard.
It is an invaluable aid to print collectors, dealers, curators, librarians and others with an interest in this neglected artist. Especially the catalogue, which lists her 200 or so original etchings and woodcuts.
The book will also appeal to anyone interested in the fascinating history of British etching in the early 20th century, and in particular the two decades that marked the final chapter of the 'etching revival'.
The book is a high-quality production, with large-format pages printed on 135gsm acid-free paper, a stitched hardback binding and separate dust jacket.
It is lavishly illustrated with photographs and reproductions of her prints. The Gallery chapter shows 24 of her original etchings and woodcuts at or near life size.
This first edition has been printed in a limited edition of 500 copies only, each numbered and signed by the author.
