Edward Thomas:
Words into Wood

The Edward Thomas Fellowship has published a fine-art limited-edition book featuring eighteen poems by Edward Thomas, illustrated by specially commissioned wood engravings by contemporary artists. This project follows on from the popular series of notecards produced by the Fellowship.

The Book has been printed by John Grice at The Evergreen Press in Gloucestershire. John utilised the artists’ original wood blocks; this has resulted in an excellent reproduction of the engravings, which are considerably superior to the notecards.
