Words into Wood

The Edward Thomas Fellowship has published a fine-art limited-edition book featuring eighteen poems by Edward Thomas, illustrated by specially commissioned wood engravings by contemporary artists.

This publication follows on from the popular series of notecards produced by the Fellowship.

The Book has been printed by John Grice at The Evergreen Press in Gloucestershire. John utilised the artists’ original wood blocks. As a result of this, the book is an excellent reproduction of the engravings.

With an introduction by Edward Cawston Thomas, accompanying notes to the poems edited by Richard Emeny from Edna Longley’s recent versions of the texts, and a biographical account written by Colin G. Thornton.
