Simon Brett RE

Simon Brett is a wood engraver and also the author of books and articles on the subject. He mostly works as an illustrator, making wood engraving prints for high-end and limited edition/ fine press publishers – wood engraving, after all and like most print-making media, was born in books and passes naturally between the printed page and the printed sheet. He has done many books for the Folio Society and recently completed The Play of Pericles Prince of Tyre for the Barbarian Press, his most ambitious work to date. When time allows, he makes single-sheet prints, some in purely visual response to the look of the world, others in response to our troubled existence in it.
