These individual leaves demonstrate the difference that good printing makes to an image. The details, distances, textures and tones, so often missing in Bewick’s published works, are a revelation to most who admire his work. The same applies to older and contemporary wood engravings that are also represented. There are fifteen engravings on the leaves and a further eleven in the accompany Notes.

The paper that supports the engraved image plays a very important part in what we see. That is why the various images are printed on some forty different papers, handmade, mould-made and machine made, inviting all manner of comparisons. Assessments of thirty four of these papers are  included in Understanding Paper and a  copy of this book is included with every copy of A Collection of Printing from Woodblocks.

The edition of 75 copies is divided into four tiers each with a copy of the Notes and different quantities of prints. Full details are in the prospectus

In a drop back box made by the Abrams Bindery, covered in green book cloth and marbled paper with a morocco spine label, and with a copy of the Notes. 330mm x 245mm.
