Carl Montford: a catalogue raisonné of the wood engravings, with other selected relief prints

Chatwin is thrilled to present this comprehensive look at the life and work of Carl Montford, long considered the dean of Northwest wood engravers.  With over 200 illustrations, this book includes a catalogue raisonné of his wood engravings with other selected relief prints, produced over Montford's nearly five decade career. Encompassing scenes of land and sea, with lyrical interpretations of flora and fauna, the work is rendered in brilliant and loving detail, and truly bring the texture and warmth of the artist's world to life.
At once inviting and intimate, Montford's oeuvre will be a lasting joy for both newcomers and seasoned practitioners of printmaking. Introduced with an essay by Phil Bevis and Connie Fu, this title offers the first-ever retrospective presentation of Montford's work, including the artist's anecdotes to illuminate key pieces, and glimpses into the evolution of images on the block.
