About this deal

M. and Eric Ravilious [Eric William Ravilious (22 July 1903 - 2 September 1942) was a British painter, designer, book illustrator and wood-engraver. James Russell is an art historian and curator specialising in Modern and Contemporary art and design.

There is about them the suggestion that you are looking in at a series of gay, old-fashioned parties from the matter-of-fact street in the present.In this context the Mainstone Press is pleased to announce the publication of The Story of High Street. The logic of this attitude, played out over the subsequent decades, has brought us to a crisis point. Ravilious had initially proposed it to the Golden Cockerel Press, with whom he had previously worked, but they were unable to undertake such an ambitious project whereas Curwen's great interest in the area of lithography saw them subsidise the project.

His enthusiasm for autolithography and children's books - he also launched the famous Puffin Picture Book series - made him the ideal publisher for High Street, although Ravilious also benefited from the invaluable support of the Curwen Press. First published in 1938, this classic book introduces the British High Street, only 2000 copies of the original book were printed before the lithographic plates were destroyed in the London Blitz.Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall).
