Prints from An ABC Tour about France



PETER ALLEN first came to Gregynog as a post-graduate student from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. Impressed by his abilities, the Press decided to publish An ABC Tour About France, an alphabet book compiled by the artist during several visits to France as a student. A series of linocuts depicting different cities, villages and regions of France are hand-coloured using stencils, a process known as pochoir.

Following the resounding success of this book the Press commissioned him to produce An ABC Tour of Wales. Here he illustrates towns, villages, mountains, valleys and islands from St David’s to Ynys Môn. In both series of prints Peter Allen’s keen eye and skilful draughtsmanship captures the essence of ’place’ in a collection of vibrant images, each alive with scintillating nuances of colour and tone. Both ABC books are now out of print but a limited number of the following illustrations are available as unmounted prints.
