"In the 1930s Agnes Miller Parker along with other artists such as Robert Gibbings, Eric Gill, Gwen Raverat and Clare Leighton took part in what can only be described as a quiet revolution: the growth of wood engraving as an expressive medium. Following its decline as simply reprographic art many artists adopted the block and burin as a means of making individual prints and book illustrations." "While at the Gregynog Press in 1931, Agnes Miller Parker and her husband William McCance, produced The Fables of Esope, now recognised as one of the finest of all private press books. Her subsequent illustrations for H. E. Bates's Through the Woods, and Down the River, published by Gollancz, brought her popular acclaim." "Ian Rogerson's book brings together for the first time over 900 of her wood engravings and linocuts, cut between 1926 and 1969. George Macy, who used her talents extensively at the Limited Editions Club of New York, claimed that 'it may not be true that she is the finest wood-engraver in the world today, but there are dozens of competent authorities who say she is'."--BOOK JACKET.
