Apple Released a $19 Polishing Cloth, and It’s Selling Out Fast

A Wood-Engraved Feathursday
English wood engraver Ian Stephens (b. 1940) has always been drawn to the natural world as the subject for his compositions. He grew up in rural Buckinghamshire, accompanying his father on his farming activities, and “through my times with him I too became deeply appreciative of [the natural world]” which continues “to dominate my interests and the themes I choose to depict in my engravings.”
So, it’s not surprising that one of his major influences is the major founder of modern wood engraving Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), whose own depiction of nature is also deeply rooted in a lived understanding of the British landscape. Stephens discusses his connection to Bewick in 2020 Vision: Nineteen Wood Engravers, One Collector, and the Artists Who Inspired Them, printed in 2020 by Patrick Randle’s Nomad Letterpress at the Whittington Press in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, in an edition of 340 copies for the 100th anniversary of the Society of Wood Engravers.
To demonstrate the aesthetic affiliations, Stephens juxtaposes Bewick’s engraving of a Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris), from the 1826 printing of Bewick’s famous A History of British Birds, with Stephens’s own wood engravings of a Swale Dipper (2019) and a Dipper on the river Conwy (2004). Both dipper depictions are of the White-throated Dipper (Cinclus cinclus).
While Stephens’s prints were made from the original wood blocks, Bewick’s Fieldfare had to be printed from a magnesium plate made from a print. So, we decided to show the actual wood-engraved Fieldfare from our own copy of the 1826 edition of British Birds (top, another gift from our friend Jerry Buff) to compare with the magnesium impression just below.
