Product description

Book Description

Cutting into the Workshop is a collaborative exploration of the life and work of David Kindersley and his influence on a generation of letter-cutters.

About the Author

Lida Cardozo Kindersley studied graphic design at the Royal Academy in the Hague before joining David Kindersley in 1976 as an apprentice in his workshop. She became his partner in David Kindersley's Workshop in 1981 and joined him in training apprentices. Since David's death in 1995 she has run the workshop, continuing in a tradition inherited from Eric Gill. Many of the workshop's stones are in churches and cathedrals, and on public buildings, but she has always been most passionate about memorial stones for individuals. Among her numerous publications from the Kindersley Workshop is her Guide to Commissioning Work.

Tom Sherwood was the foundation Professor of Radiology and also Clinical Dean of the Cambridge University School of Clinical Medicine. He was drawn into the Kindersley Workshop through commissioning various stones there, and at Frensham Heights School and for The Lancet. He is a writer of medical papers, textbooks and occasional pieces.
