The New Leader Book – Raverat, Greenwood, Taylor & John A Murphy


The New Leader was the weekly Labour Party paper with a literary and philosophical slant and, from about 1923-1926, they produced an annual issue, with a pocket containing a dozen wood engravings and other illustrations on hand made paper. It is interesting that it was felt that prints like this were an affordable way to issue a popular print series.

Gwen Raverat is included and a gorgeous engraving by John F Greenwood (more info at, one by Charles W Taylor and a couple of the very distinctive work of John J A  Murphy

The 1923 issue also included a number of Raverat wood engravings in the main booklet as well.
