Prints from 'Pennant and his Welsh landscapes'

detail from  Prints from


Thomas Pennant (1726 – 1798), naturalist and antiquary, was a widely travelled author and observer, much revered by his contemporaries.

Edited and with an Introduction by Gwyn Walters, illustrated with 20 colour woodcuts by Rigby Graham, this superb 168 page volume is designed by Robert Meyrick. The edition is now sold out.

A prolific and versatile painter, printmaker and illustrator, RIGBY GRAHAM has illustrated hundreds of books for both private and commercial presses, and has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad.

He is an Associate Fellow of De Montfort University, Leicester, and his biography was recently printed in Verona by Mardersteig. In his illustrations for Pennant and his Welsh Landscapes he has attempted to reflect the contemporary view rather than reproduce that of Pennant, and has compressed time, so that past and present often co-exist within a single image. Thus the intrusion of a Vulcan bomber silhouetted above an ancient landmark will provoke thought, debate and delight. He takes pleasure in being provocative, and his art is the more engaging for it. Graham has attempted to inject vitality into the volume by using vibrant colours for each of the 16 full page and 4 double page illustrations, and in so doing has created a dynamic and visually stimulating volume for Gwasg Gregynog.
