Edward Bawden
Edward Bawden (1903 – 1989) was a British painter, illustrator and graphic artist who is famous for his prints, book covers, posters & wallpapers. It's his prints that I'm really interested in though being from a printmaking background myself.His block prints are nothing short of impressive with his London and Brighton prints being especially strong works. This London Markets series from 1967 in particular caught my eye with their attention to detail and bold geometric compositions.
