Monday copy Rav

Eric Ravilious Scrapbooks is a beautiful book which we sell in the shop (it’s horribly expensive though, £40, but £35 with our £5-off sticker). Every page is fascinating and this week on the Post five random examples. First a 1932 woodblock. ‘The colour effect was achieved by rolling red ink on the top of the block and black on the bottom so the colours mingled’ (p. 71).
