Liquor & Literature ~ Edward Ardizzone

The Press has acquired a collection of letters to the designer and typographer John Lewis from Edward Ardizzone concerning his commission to illustrate the 1963 edition of Harvey’s Wine List. These are to be published with a Preface by the renowned Alan Powers [Edward Ardizzone, Artist and Illustrator, Lund Humphries 2016] and adorned with a selection of Ardizzone’s witty illustrations. As an extra treat there will be a centre-piece tip-in of a previously unpublished water-coloured ink drawing ‘Wine-tasters at Restells’ already printed from a digital scan by the Senecio Press. Probably 150 copies; possibly 2018.
