The Life and Art of Clifford Webb by Simon Brett

The Life and Art of Clifford Webb by Simon Brett


Clifford Webb (1894–1972) was one of the foremost wood engravers and illustrators of the twentieth century and was a leading light in a golden age of printmaking. Yet his life and work have been overlooked for over half a century. When Clifford Webb died in 1972, much of his work was lost. But thanks to the determination of Simon Brett, who has painstakingly assembled what remains of Webb’s extraordinary vision, a new generation can now discover a ferocious talent and reclaim an artistic voice that was almost lost to history.


Illustrated throughout.

  • About Little Toller Books

    Toller n river valley in West Dorset. Recorded in the Domesday
    survey as Tolre, derived from a Celtic word for stream in a hollow valley.

    Little Toller Books was born in 2008 as an imprint of the Dovecote Press, a family-run publishing company that has specialised in books about rural life and local history since 1974. Little Toller was started with a singular purpose: to revive forgotten and classic books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.

    The success of Little Toller’s Nature Classics has enabled it to grow into an independent publisher, attuned to writers and artists who seek inventive ways to reconnect us with the natural world and to celebrate the places we live in.
