Over seventy years ago Country Life Books published High Street, a children's book of shops, featuring twenty-four exquisite lithographs by the English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Although the book was not a limited edition, the destruction of the lithographic plates during the Blitz meant that only 2000 copies were ever printed. Subsequently High Street has become one of the most highly-prized artist's books of its time.
This is an original lithograph, printed at The Curwen Press in 1938 (and not to be confused with the modern giclée reproductions in circulation).
Historically, book dealers would remove the lithographs and sell individually (we sourced this selection of lithographs - the last we'll have access to - some years ago).
Due to the scarcity of the book and the increased interest in Ravilious' work, the High Street book is generally sold in its entire published form.
