LINED COMMONPLACE BOOK 120 X 165 - EDWARD BAWDEN CURWEN PRESS (GREEN)


Journal with lined pages.   120 x 165 mm. 240 sides of 110 gsm smooth ivory paper. 

The cover is a design by Edward Bawden for the Curwen Press (now out of print).

Edward Bawden (1903-1989) was a painter, illustrator and graphic artist, also serving as a war artist in World War II.  

The Curwen Press came into being in 1863 and its work in the early C20th had a strong focus on well-designed commercial printing. Contemporary artists were commissioned as illustrators and designers and in the 1920s, the Curwen Press began the production of  a collection of iconic pattern papers, commissioning designs from young artists including Eric Ravilious, Enid Marx, Edward Bawden,  Engraved patterns were transferred onto lithographic plates. They were used widely in publishing, for example by the Folio Society, by Penguin and by Hamish Hamilton in the Novel Library series. With the closure of the press in 1984, the manufacture of the papers came to an end.
