5.0 out of 5 stars One to Keep, 19 April 2009
This review is from: Nature's Engraver: A Life of Thomas Bewick (Hardcover)
I'm predisposed to enjoy biographies, which I normally read in paperback. During the course of reading this one I ordered it in hardback to keep on my bookshelves. From it I formed the opinion that Thomas Bewick could be the most talented artist ever to breathe English air. His work, his enthusiasms and his enterprise were phenomenal. At the same time he was a simple man, ambitious not for himself but for his work. After reading the chapter on 'The History of Quadrupeds' I bought an 1807 edition for 100 pounds. To have prints from his original blocks printed by hand on handmade paper 200 years old is awesome. His talent was absolutely unique. 'Nature's Engraver' is indeed an inspiring book.
