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.
