Artist and Printmaker 

We’re thrilled to announce the return of a wonderful book celebrating the life and work of an exceptional Dorset artist. With over 200 illustrations, Rena Gardiner: Artist and Printmaker explores a legacy of paintings, pastels and linocuts, alongside an astonishing output of books that Rena wrote, illustrated and printed herself in a small thatched cottage in Tarrant Monkton. The book combines exuberant, joyful colour and texture with meticulous research and an account of a printing technique that was uniquely her own.

We have 30 copies available for £140, each lovingly hand-bound by Ludlow Bookbinders and presented with a linen slipcase. With the paperback edition (published 2015) now so collectable, this limited, numbered edition will be highly sought-after in years to come.

Only available from Little Toller
