Camberwell Press 1996 - Sole UK Printing published by the Camberwell Press in 1996. 37.5 cm square. The BOOK is in Fine condition. This is number 131 from a limitation of just 225 books. The book is Signed and Numbered by Brian Webb. The series of coloured lithographs from the original edition of Submarine Dream was stochastically screened from original prints and printed on Canaletto paper at the Camberwell Press. The cover design is based on a design by Tirzah Ravilious. At the outbreak of WWII,Eric Ravilious became an official war artist along with Edward Bawden and John Nash. During the summer of 1940 he painted submarine operations at HMS Dolphin in Hampshire. Over the following months he produced a series of lithographs based on his submarine drawings which were printed in a small edition at Cowells of Ipswich, his first choice, the Curwen Press, having been bombed. Ravilious went on to further assignments. On his last, a flight over Iceland in 1942, he was reported missing, presumed dead. He was 39 years of age. This is the first time that these lithographs have been stochastically reproduced from the original prints. They are a wonderful evocation of submarine life. A very high quality production and extremely scarce. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact. More images available on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
