Dartmouth Book Arts Workshop
When Ray Nash (1905-1982) arrived at Dartmouth in 1937, he made things happen. He started a graphic arts workshop, and from the beginning enthused students with courses on graphic arts and bibliography. As book designer, calligrapher and historian of graphic design, he continued his role as mentor and instructor until his retirement in 1970. He favoured a hands-on print-making approach, which was a great favourite with many students, many of whom became successful and influential book designers and typographers in their own right. He was not just a practitioner. He wrote books and articles, including his seminal ‘Education in a Workshop’. He was a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and of the Society of Antiquaries of London. This photograph was taken in 1970, the year of his retirement.
