Slater's Sussex: the colour woodcuts of Eric Slater

                                                            

Here is a must for the bookshelves of anyone with more than a passing interest in British colour woodcut: Slater's Sussex, a book by James Trollope, just published by the Towner Gallery at Eastbourne. It has eighty pages, seventeen of them in full colour, and another fifty illustrations. I don't have a copy as yet but James is a journalist who lives at Seaford in Slater country and I know he has used his skills to uncover as much as he can about this popular artist.

It costs £15 and at present is only available from the Towner. You can order over the phone 01323 434670. Both James Trollope and the Towner deserve support on this one.

  3. I went to the Slater exhibition at the Towner Gallery a few months ago, and it was excellent. Looking forward to getting the book.

  4. response to my e-mail to the gallery

    The Eric Slater book went on sale on Saturday at £15. Unfortunately we do not have an online facility at the moment for buying the book. However, we can do an over-the-phone transaction if you are unable to come to the Gallery. There would then be an additional P&P charge of £2.50.

    Kind regards
