|Gwyddau yng Ngregynog / Geese at Gregynog|
COLIN SEE-PAYNTON's wood engravings thrillingly transcend the conventions of wildlife illustration, an area traditionally limiting for wood engravers. Self-taught as a wood engraver, he has established a reputation as one of the leading artists working in this medium today. His work is noted for fineness of execution and an appropriateness which makes the subject immediately accessible. He has illustrated six titles for Gwasg Gregynog, these are from 'Geese at Gregynog'. Printed on Lana mould-made paper in an edition limited to 100 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. They are available unmounted individually or as a set of three.
|An ABC Tour of France|
A series of linocuts depicting different cities, villages and regions of France are hand-coloured using stencils, a process known as pochoir. The book is out of print, but a number of the illustrations are available as individual prints.
|Harry Brockway: The Story of Heledd|
HARRY BROCKWAY is one of a growing number of younger artists making wood engravings. Originally trained as a sculptor, he was taught wood engraving at the Royal Academy Schools by Sarah van Niekerk. He is also a stonemason and now lives in Glastonbury. His illustrations for The Story of Heledd were made by engraving the main image on plastic, the second colour being overprinted from linocuts. Edition of 66, signed by the artist. Individual, unmounted prints. Numbers 4 and 6 are slightly smaller
A portfolio of 6 large prints printed from linocuts bequeathed to Gwasg Gregynog by the late Sir Kyffin Williams R.A., who was a staunch supporter of the Press during his lifetime. Each print is on a full sheet of hand-made paper specially made for the Press at the Griffen Mill in County Mayo, Ireland.
