Abstract

Fleece Press owner Simon Lawrence began printing and publishing books in Yorkshire, England in 1980. Over the years he has printed about 80 separate titles, most handset in metal type with images supplied from engraved woodblocks. His private press business has been described as ‘the highest quality private publishing firm in the country’ (Spectator, 2009). This volume features the work of Scottish born artist and wood-engraver, Agnes Miller Parker (1895-1980). Her talent as a wood-engraver came to the fore in her mid-30s and she had a particular artistic affinity for animals. Exquisitely designed and printed, this Fleece Press volume is a wonderful example of one of the Special Collections private press holdings.
