"The purpose of this book is to show that there is now a British school of wood engraving with a common philosophical vision and a dominant aesthetic language to which many artists have made personal contributions. To enable the reader to appreciate the full range of ideas and expression, the root sources in antiquity from which the school draws inspiration have been summarized. This book provides the first opportunity to bring together the work of a lards number of artists and to set down an account of their activities which have contributed to the establishment of the British school."-- from introduction.
