Abstract

This limited edition displays the exceptional talent of E. Mervyn Taylor (1906–1964), one of New Zealand’s best engravers, who was justly recognised by international agencies such as the New York-based Society of Illustrators. If there is one image that captures the essence of Taylor’s fine work it is this frontispiece -‘The Magical Wooden Head’, engraved on boxwood in 1952.
