Abstract

The striking line illustrations accompanying Swinburne’s Laus Veneris are by the Dunedin-born self-taught etcher and engraver, John Buckland-Wright (1897-1954). While resident in Paris, Buckland-Wright worked with Picasso; the latter’s influence evident in some of the 50 books Buckland-Wright illustrated. JBW – as he signed himself – had a long and fruitful association with the Golden Cockerel Press. This post-War production was designed by Christopher Sandford and put through the press by R.F. Parsley. It is no. 668 of 750 copies.
