Introducing the Eric Ravilious Wood Engraving Greetings Card Collection (No. 1), featuring Hovis Mill, Hollow Lane and Sussex Landscape. In case you were wondering, the difference between a wood engraving and a woodcut, is the orientation of the grain – a woodcut is cut into a section of wood taken from the long plane of a tree, where-as an engraving is cut into a horizontal section of a tree, which gives the artist a much denser grain to work with.
Blank inside, so suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, and all occasions.
Dimensions: 178mm by 127mm (landscape).
Printed on 300gsm FSC approved Invercote card stock using high quality inks to retain the colours of the original image. Each card is supplied with a white laid envelope, so you can share them with friends and family.
Eric Ravilious (22 July 1903 – 2 September 1942) was an exceptional watercolourist, wood engraver and designer. He grew up in the shadow of the Sussex Downs in the coastal town of Eastbourne, the surrounding landscape of which heavily influenced many of his best known works. His instantly recognisable style, palette and choice of subject have an almost universal appeal, a blend which has increased in popularity with the passing of time, particularly in the first two decades of the 21st century.
