Eric Ravilious

Eric Ravilious's premature death was a huge loss to the world of design and art. Noel Carrington had recognised Ravilious' talent early on and as Carrington moved within the world of publishing and editing he consistently commissioned Ravilious. At the Kynock Press Ravilious produced a Note Book and engraved covers for Carrington's clients. At Country Life Carrington commissioned Ravilious for the Cookery Book and, of course, High Street. Then at Penguin, the tale of the lost Puffin, now seems, if possible, almost more of a loss that at the time.
