Artists Of The First World War - Volume 1

Here’s a great present idea for the art fan in your life who already has almost everything. 

It is essentially a beginners’ guide to some of the artists who were involved in the Great War, but we have avoided most of the bigger names and tried to include people who you may not have heard of before - with brief biographies, photos if we have them and examples of work as available. 

A5 paperback - 120 pages.

This “launch” edition of the artists book contains images of 80 arts works in varying sizes – 47 in colour in and 33 in black and white.  It also has 55 black and white photographs – either portraits of the artists or shots of their surroundings. There are two pages of further book suggestions at the back. Of the 120 pages in total, only 21 have no images on them at all. 

The book is an A5 portrait format paperback, printed on 115gsm silk stock. It is intended as a general interest book rather than a “fine art” publication.
