'The School Prints Series' was dreamt up towards the end of WW-2, when Brenda Rawnsley and her husband Derek had the idea of bringing contemporary art to young children by putting 'good' art into schools. Initially British artists were commissioned to produce one lithograph each, John Nash, Paul Nash, Henry Moore, John Tunnard, Barbara Jones, L.S Lowry and many more. These were issued in a series of standard-sized prints to which schools could subscribe.A war widow at the age of 30, Brenda took up the project again immediately after the war and embarked on an even more ambitious project...

Born and living in London, Mendez was a painter, muralist and art teacher. Sometime textiles designer and head of the textiles department at Camberwell School of Art, his abstract compositions place him firmly in the 1950s British abstract vernacular. The work also owes a great deal to kinetic and hard edge abstraction or concrete work prevalent in the 1960s. Although regularly exhibited, his work was changeable in form. This collection of 25 works on paper, recently acquired by Marcus Campbell Art Books, reflect the artist’s broad interest in form and composition and his keen... Read More

The books were not issued sequentially (Volume 15 was published first), nor did they present the artist’s work chronologically, but all were the same trim size, allowing for the economical reuse of material at the printer. Individual editions... Read More
