The Life and Art of Clifford Webb-Books & Stationery-Little Toller-Brassica Mercantile

by Simon Brett

Clifford Webb (1894–1972) was one of the foremost wood engravers and illustrators of the twentieth century and was a leading light in a golden age of printmaking. Yet his life and work have been overlooked for over half a century. When Clifford Webb died in 1972, much of his work was lost. But thanks to the determination of Simon Brett, who has painstakingly assembled what remains of Webb’s extraordinary vision, a new generation can now discover a ferocious talent and reclaim an artistic voice that was almost lost to history.
