"This is the 71st annual exhibition, and the 25th since the re-founding of the SWE.

A wide range of original prints in limited editions is on show, in which ancient techniques are deployed by modern artists, to create beautiful images - some dramatic, some witty, all stylish. Some of the foremost practitioners are currently exhibiting"

The show is previewed by the Oxford Times here.

Art Jericho have a number of prints by Thomas Bewick listed for sale.
"the 5 engravings at Art Jericho were printed (with considerable difficulties!) from his blocks by the Charlotte Press in 1970."

Illustrated is Red Kite by Ian Stephens.
