About the Author:

Colin Harrison is Curator of British Paintings and Drawings and Curator of the Pissarro Family Archive at the Ashmolean Museum. Jon Whiteley is Senior Assistant Keeper in the Department of Western Art at the Ashmolean Museum.

Review:

"..these essays contribute to an understanding of Eragny Press books as something more than exquisite specimens of privately printed books. They become complex and collaborative products - the locus of many artistic movements, of historical and modern print- and bookmaking traditions, even of French and English cultures.

"...This catalog does surpass other publications on the Eragny Press with its abundant high-quality color illustrations. Color printing being a hallmark of Eragny Press, this catalog reveals the Pissarros' artistry with multiple views of individual titles, including many full-page and double-page spreads. It reproduces frontispieces, initials, illustrations, bindings, and decorative papers as well as additional artifacts from the exhibition, such as family photographs, preparatory sketches, trial prints, and wood blocks.

"...This slim, soft-cover volume seems to mimic an elegantly designed Eragny Press book in typeface and format. recommended for academic and museum libraries, in particular those with collections focusing on the history and arts of the book."
-Publication of Art Libraries Association of North America (ARLIS)
